Random Acts of Kindness

5 07 2009

Well yes, I am still around, the blog has been neglected again. Sometimes, life, work and things just get in the way and before I know it months have passed by without a post.

It has been a strange time of late, I have been having some issues at home, mainly the fact that my lovely hubby who has worked hard for 4 years to complete his PhD in Chemistry is now finding it terribly hard to find work. This has been a real strain on us and I have been finding it hard to find solace in my knitting, that was until I received 2 amazing boxes from the USA and a parcel from England.

Let me explain, I have this amazing set of online friends that I met via the “Friends of P” group on Ravelry and they are the most kind, thoughtful, like-minded, generous people anyone could dream of knowing. I had mentioned about my problems and they where always there (and still are) with a sympathetic comment and some positive vibes (even though they must have been sick of listening to me moan!) and they started hatching a plan of which I had no idea!

Until one day, I received 2 HUGE boxes from across the pond and a parcel from Derby. WOW, where do I begin, well I will just show you what I received:

I am a very lucky girl, the kindness really blew me away and really I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You to everyone involved, you all know who you are, your generosity has restored my faith in human nature and I appreciate it more than words can say. Love your faces xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

Sorry to hear that life has been stressful of late Jo. Hope that your hubby finds a job very, very soon. What a lovely lot of parcels you’ve receieved. The knitting community are a very caring bunch of folks. You must have been so touched by their kindness. All that yarn in the top picture – well, I just want to reach out and squish it! Which one are you going to start off with? Look after yourself. xxx
