My sister, Pati, has found some free time on her hands. One of her long standing wishes has been to learn how to knit or crochet.
Pati has worked hard all her life, sometimes two jobs. We are both in our 50’s and a tad set in our ways.
I desperately need your help. Pati is facing a fear. She is on the precipice of having a dream fulfilled only to be held back by fear. Fear of not being “Good enough”. She has found a kind soul who has offered to teach her how to knit but now Pati is making excuses and is turning her back on the dream.
Please leave a message to Pati in the comments section of this post. Tell her of your own struggle with knitting or crocheting when you started. What was the first thing you made. Also tell her what kept you going to do the next piece.
I am NOT asking for donations of needles and yarn. Only a small bit of your time.
As in all families, the one most in need of support and encouragement thinks that one family member who sticks their nose in is full of doo doo and they don’t know or understand what is really going on.
Pati needs to know that someone else has gone through what she is facing. A dream within reach but too afraid to step into the dream.
She will be ready to kill me but I am not afraid. Besides I live too far away from her to be quaking in my boots.
I wish to thank you all in advance for sharing your encouragement. It is my firm belief that people are willing to help someone out, even through the Internet and friendships develop in amazing ways. Please help my sister over this hurdle.
