Yesterday, Black Friday, instead of going to the stores, I stayed home. Hubby brought the two kids, who can walk and use the potty now, to their grandparent's home for a day-long visit. And it was a day-long break for mama. Pie-pie stayed home for a little R&R and nursing in peace and quiet. It was GLORIOUS.
I managed to get some Christmas crafting accopmlished, without interruption. I also just sat and knit, and knit, and knit while Pie-Pie did some pre-knitting-exploration. Quite. Baby coos. Hot tea. Soft knitting. A bit of time, taken amidst such flurry, chaos, and movement in prepration of the holiday season. Like, I said, it was GLORIOUS.
Hello, I am glad you came. Abbie Living is the place where I share my sewing, knitting, and crafting projects and most importantly, share my passion for helping others in need.
I've lived in impoverished places where children run with no shoes, play without toys, and face a future of hard labor. I knew I would return home to a quiet desk office wearing dress shoes and drinking lattes.
As I grew into a wife, a mother of three, and began my journey as a child of God, I chose a different path. Guided by the Holy Spirit and the memory of the people I'd met in rural Mexico, I decided to combine my creative talents with my passion for giving to create more for those in need.
Here in this space I hope to encourage and inspire others to actively live their talents and share their passions with others so we all can make a better world.
