My father in law is currently receiving respite care in a nearby hospice.
We sit and watch and wait. He chats and naps. Time is held in calm suspension.
Outside the sun shines, the birds sing, seemingly oblivious of our inward commotion.
On Saturday evening Steve and I went to watch football on tv with his Dad. We all enjoyed it.
Whenever there is stress in my life I return to the comfort of knitting.
Easy, no need to think, garter stitch~ using up my yarn leftovers to make a charity blanket.
I have let my supply agencies know that I am unavailable for work this week.
It is time to slacken the pace and support family.
