In my way

A 'big' Christmas make.  I rushed to finish.  I put all else aside.

Unfortunately the recipients - a mother and two little boys are of no fixed abode until after Christmas.  I have nowhere to send my parcel to!!

But as Deb always says, it will still keep them warm, whether it was received on Christmas day or after.

If I'm honest the making was kind of a cathartic experience.  An out pouring of love for a women my husband used to work with, a women who found herself in a desperately sad and frustrating situation; and her two children under five who just didn't know which way was up and how to feel or act about it.

They wanted so so much more of me than I was able to give.

Sometimes I can't give all or even half of my heart.  Sometimes the love and caring needs to be on my terms and in my way.
