Hope is such a simple thing.
It's a bit of sand showing in the drive.
It's round edges on a long ago shoveled path.
It's water dripping into the porch.
It's knowing that soon the child's extra curricular activities will end and Mama might get to have a bit more knitting time.
It's people who come and say nice things and generally remember that I am here in my little world.
Awhile back Sus gifted me with a "You make my Day" award and I have yet to pass them on. So today I would like to say that all of you who come here even with my sporadic blogging and very little to say make my day along with these 10 people who have kept me sane and going during my busy time.
I am supposed to pass them on to 10 bloggers who make my day but I think there are two people who don't blog that completely deserve them right now.
1. My husband, corny I know, but for the small bits of time we get at home together, he has been very patient with the amount of it that I've been spending online getting ISE 6 together, opened and started.
2. My 65 year old aunt whose name I love enough to give it to my Girly. She had back surgery a couple of days ago and has suffered from osteoporosis for years but woke up from anesthesia asking when she can go back to mountain climbing. She is more concerned about all the hikes she can't lead while she is laid up than on having back surgery. Amazing woman.
The next eight women are the wonderful volunteers helping me run ISE 6 and keeping the workload fun and light.
3. Margaret - also our Taiwanese translator,
Of course I would be remiss in not mentioning Leslie the lovely lady who makes the pretties for our group blog.
