Don’t let the door whack you in the butt on the way out!

Personally, I thought the first bit of the year really stank.  In April, I had my first real-life trip to the hospital by ambulance, and subsequently lost all faith in my family physician.  Other small disappointments left me feeling a little down for awhile. 

Thank goodness for quilting.  And knitting.  And jewelry-making.  I could go on.  There’s no better therapy than putting your hands to good use, I think.  The projects I enjoyed the most were charity quilts, and so I have decided to do more of them this year.  That’s step 1 in my plan for a joyful 2009.  And joy is my wish for all of you, too.
