“Should we patent this invention for instant happiness ??!!”

Some of the most cosy additions in my winter wardrobe have been knitted for me by my Mom in law 😊.
There are booties in various colours and shawls in brilliant red and emerald green. I have entire woollen bed spreads made by Mom one patch at a time, at the bookshop that she manages ever so efficiently. She loves keeping her brood warm and we love this about her.
The recepients of her woollen creations range from foreigners who visit the shop and fall in love with what she is giving finishing touches to, to distant relatives who keep reminding her that they are still in queue😃.
Mom never says no, and nor does she hasten. In her own pace, with her own joy, she just labours away calmly.
Bit by bit she has created entire bedspreads plus cushion covers for all her grand children. They lie beautifully wrapped in her meticulously kept cupboard, waiting for the time they can be gifted. 😊
She has been known to undo ten inches of a sweater because she spots an aberration in her knit 😶. Restarting something is never an issue with her. But living with a less than perfect creation, is.
In the winter, when I wrap around me, a beautifully perfect shawl knitted by her, I am instantly warmed, not so much by the wool as by her love that I feel surrounding me… 😍

The Before and After of my morning cup of tea 😁!
This concept is so beautiful.
There is a Before and After for everything (other than make-up and weight-loss! 😂) The plump toffee that just went into our mouth, leaving a crumpled wrapper behind or the beautiful vegetables, full and shiny in a steel parat, now chopped and cooked, creating mouth – watering dishes. Or that crisp, ironed outfit that saw the fancy function, now lying in a not so artistic heap 😊.
To train the eye to see the beauty in simple everyday objects is to open up an astonishing new world of possibilities…. A new way of Seeing… 😊
