It seems like I post on Facebook a lot but not on my blog so much anymore. I apologize for that. Just wanted to check in and fill everyone in on my life as it is these days.
So, I have had a goal for many years, to become a US citizen, but with the lack of $$$ to do that it was only a dream. Well, last year my friend's mom sponsored me and I filled out all the paperwork and mailed it in! Last week, I took my citizenship tests, and passed, and today I received notice that I will be sworn in On February 11, 2011 - So 2-11-2011. I love that date! :) ♥ I am so excited!
I feel like dancing on clouds.
I want to celebrate somehow, but not sure how exactly...
I was out walking this morning, thinking about what a blessing it is to live in this country, and to live in this safe valley, where I have such good friends and neighbors, and where we receive many blessings. I am thankful to Heavenly Father for bringing our family here, and blessing us as He does.
My neighbor is moving and she has been going through her enormous stack of boxes and as she comes across yarn she is giving it to me to make into mittens and hats and whatever... it's been like Christmas every few days for me as she finds more. ♥
Speaking of yarn... BYU Women's Conference is at the end of April and I am so looking forward to attending this year. It is the ultimate break for me every year as I meet with good friends up there and we sit together listening to uplifting talks and making items for humanitarian causes.
And, up and coming--- the humanitarian booth is something I am tackling again and I am changing a little bit, what I do there. No loom knitting this year. Instead I am collecting 6" granny squares and teaching people to assemble them into lapghans for seniors.
If you would like to send some granny squares, I'D LOVE IT!! The more the merrier! It takes 48 to make one lapghan. You can read more about it on this page:
Likely will still have a quilt or 3 to tie, but it will be mostly display this year. Hoping to get more communities involved in helping others where they live.
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!!
