Tomorrow my mother goes into the hospital for surgery. It is a pretty standard surgery, but still scary. I've started taking a medication at night, that will supposedly help my colitis. I was hesitant for a few reasons, but I need to see if it opens a door to remission. For my birthday I am planning a visit to the Weleda Spa nearby. I really like their products and can't wait to get a facial. I really need one! Having a baby (ahem,some 15 months ago) wreaks havoc on your skin!

I also have 3 or 4 vintage quilts, patchwork that need serious mending. I could easily stitch them up on the Huskystar, but I need to hand stitch them. I love hand-stitching so much. It is meditative, grounds me and relaxes me too. Each stitch is different like snowflakes. Last night, I watched as my mother hand-stitched a pair of pajama pants and then realized these old quilts I have need that sort of attention.

So we are all in some stage of mending. I guess that means Spring is getting closer. Leaves and trunks and grass repairing themselves- growing. Now if I could just grow some patience and be in the now- be less of a procrastinator and more of a doer. Still a lot of work to accomplish!

I will pray for your mom to go through her surgery well, and for your medication to work for your colitis! Enjoy your mending!
