Lessons in life and needlework

In the early hours of the morning exactly a month ago I realized that the amount of time for the body to heal is something one cannot always plan or predict. This is still a lesson I have to learn with all it's nuances.
Hard to do when until recently I was fortunate to live life simply by planning and doing whatever it took to make things happen according to my own time table...
I have to embrace a different approach and allow my body to heal on it's own time ... and accept 'defeat' and be grateful for the continued improvement ...
and let some things go.
For most people my progress is already almost 'normal healing and movement'... just happen to demand a lot more of myself in my profession and in my 'serious needlework projects'.... never knew how much I have fine tuned things over the years ... still working towards being pain free and regaining "my" full range of movement...

I will post on some of the needlework projects I have been busy with these past months shortly.

Dear Nupur,

I'm sending you my best wishes for your recovery and healing.

Please do not think you are accepting 'defeat' you are growing into a new way of understanding your body and your needs and you are well on the way.

Take care and be kind to yourself. You are an amazing person.

Kindest regards, Dianne

It is so hard to let go... I wish you well and know that your efforts to hone your dexterity and skill will get you back to where you want to be - determination means a lot.

Dear Dianne , Thank you for your kind words. I am looking at these past months as a sort of course correction.... good things ahead plus don't worry I am way too 'stubborn' to accept 'defeat' so easily. Looking forward to creating a new plan

Nupur, I missed this post as it was when my husband was in the Hospice toward the end of his life.
I do hope that you are more fully healed now and will soon be back to blogging again - I do not know what has happened, but I do know, as you have expressed, that healing is not always in the timetable we would like, or as we would like it.
Hugs and blessings

Dear Maxine,
I just saw your message right now - had been thinking about you recently - life’s interesting coincidences. I am sorry to hear of your husband’s failing health. I wish you lots of courage - take good care of yourself too in such trying times. All my good wishes.
