Sleep is the Swiss army knife of health. When sleep is deficient, there is sickness and disease. When deep sleep is abundant, there is vitality and health.
I have been sick with a nasty head cold for about a week now. Sleep is a fleeting thing when you are coughing a lot through the night. Of course that makes any type of respiratory problem worse.
So far I have been somewhat successful in keeping this stuff from getting into my lungs and turning into either bronchitis or pneumonia. I may check in with my doctor soon if this doesn’t clear up.
My forays out into the world have been few since I’d rather not give people a gift that keeps on giving.
I started on a little project today that I refer to in my mind as “Make Peace Yarn.”
Its for a moody person that I know doesn’t like me well, but as I cannot conceive of what I may have done that may have caused offense, I decided to respond in love and kindness rather than allowing poor behavior to dictate how I will react.
Responding in kind would only make for more anger and hate between us. That is not the type of person I want to be, nor is it the type of person God calls me to be.
This person has many qualities that I admire, including cardweaving on an unusual loom that they built themselves. I wish I was more like this person with their great problem solving skills, fearlessness, ability to adapt, and amazing tendency to do almost anything incredibly well.
I can only hope that this person will enjoy working with the yarn I craft for them. Even if they choose to destroy it, my conscience will have more serenity knowing that I made the effort to try to create peace. I am eager to see how any weaving this person does with my handspun gift yarn turns out.
I started on combing and blending to make a tightly spun and 2 ply worsted yarn. So far its looking pretty good. I am hoping it will continue to go well. I want to create at least 4 colors total.
We will see if peace breaks out and wins the day.
