Sad day

Today I went to Dorit's funeral. It was very sad. I thought I'd be ok when everyone was talking about breast cancer (because while that was an important topic to Dorit, it wasn't *all* Dorit was.) Then her brother stood up and told stories about her, and that was it. I was done.

I feel the saddest about all of this because Dorit and I had been drifting apart in the last year. She just didn't have the energy for our friendship, and I feel like I didn't do enough to make up for it. My heart is broken that I can not do anything more for her. I'm only glad that I told her I loved her every time I talked to her.

Make sure that you give to the people you love, and not just your heart.

Please consider participating in the Gal to Gal Virtual Walk at

Here is a beautiful tribute to Dorit.

sorry I've been hiding

I've been very neglectful of my blog. To be honest, I've had absolutely nothing of interest to report! I've been very neglectful of my knitting too. Sometimes life gets in the way.

I promise to write something interesting soon!
