"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever ascending, ever improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and the glory of the climb."
~Winston ChurchillThis quote makes me think of all those things that I face daily...relationships, knitting, laundry, housework, my personal faith, raising my children....there will always be something else to replace that thing that gets checked off the list. I finish the laundry, then I need to start dinner. I get the dishes put away and before I know it, it's time for breakfast. I feel like I've nailed down an area in my life that needed some tending and just as I sit down for a breather, I see another corner of my heart that needs some sweeping. I barely cast on for one project and then I see another I want to start. I'm learning (be it ever so slowly...and with multiple lessons) to enjoy the journey. To keep my eyes on the stone in front of me and not be looking too far off down the road. There is so much to be thankful for every day. Just this morning, my friend dropped her gallon juice jug in the parking lot as she was bringing beverages today to our CBS brunch. She came in carrying her sweet daughter bemoaning the fact that we wouldn't have juice as it was sprayed all over the parking lot. Oh well. Thank goodness she dropped the juice and not her daughter. I'm working on being more thankful...mostly I'm thankful for another day to try again.
