In December 2009, I suddenly lost my mom. That was the most difficult time. It took me a little while
to pick up my crochet hook again, but when I did, crocheting really helped me get through that. I know that she would have wanted me to do what made me happy.
For me, that is crochet. I've found that crocheting is like a therapy for me. It is what makes me feel normal. It's probably why I always have so many projects going on at the same time. In fact, as I'm writing this blog, I'm thinking about which of those projects I'm going to work on when I'm done!
When I'm having a bad day, it really helps me get through it. Crocheting gets my mind off of my tingling feet, muscle spasms, or my eye bothering me. It might not make the pain go away completely, but it takes my mind off of it just for a little while.
Little did I know that the craft that I learned over 10 years ago would mean so much to me today.
