JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 346 :: christmas kindness

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

And guess what?

I created a hat. All by myself! I’m so shocked and proud of this little warm and fuzzy. I feel like a little kid, bouncing up and down, screaming “I made it all by myself!”

Of course, I didn’t do it all by myself. There were a few other hands at play. My dear Mama Sling who so many years ago taught me how to crochet with my tiny fingers. And then, of course, my lovely friend Lauren who bought me the yarn and needle as a Christmas gift, and reminded me how to weave together the yarn.

It reminds me that we never really do anything alone. There are so many hands at play, for our higher good and happiness.

And that seems pretty kind to me.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 344 ::christmas kindness

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Today I was on the other side of kindness….

I received an early Christmas gift. It was a bundle of yarn to crochet. I have not “crocheted” (is that a word?) since I was a little girl. My Mama Sling taught me how to hold the yarn and weave it together in a gentle way that eventually created a scarf.

My scarf was crooked with wobbly holes. But I loved it. I loved it so much I gave that scarf to my friend Kari for her birthday. We were maybe in second grade and I’m sure the “gift” looked just as wobbly as my little fingers as they mimicked my mothers weaving magic.

But it was the thought that counted the most. And that brings me to this:  Sometimes the best part of kindness is receiving.

Being open to gifts and the love that comes with it might just be one of the secrets of Christmas.

And now…. I crochet!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
