The silver lining

In less than a few minutes of publishing my last moaning post, things turned around thanks to you. The support and encouragement in your sweet words really made my day. So all I want to say is THANK YOU for being there in good times and bad times. Wednesday might have started off a bit rocky but there was many golden moments to enjoy. Just look at my collection of happy moments:

♥︎ Reading all the wonderful and encouraging comments on that post - You are simply the best!
♥︎ Understanding I'm not alone.
♥︎ Packing and shipping yarn orders and getting inspired by the color choices of my buyers.
♥︎ A nice painting-egg get together with some friends and their girls which ended up in face, and later body painting, for the kids and big dives into our freezing cold fountain - Yeeeps!
♥︎ The beauty of my totally wild and uncontrollable garden in spring blossoms - LOVE!
♥︎ A large bouquet of pink tulips bought at the grocery store.
♥︎ Messages from ladies wanting to attend my Flower crochet workshop on Thursday night.
♥︎ The look of my Maybelle flowers growing in numbers.
♥︎ Another crochet project slowly reaching the finish line...
♥︎ Falling asleep at 8.30 pm on top of my bed sheets in my clothing with my book on my chest and choosing to swop into PJs and continue to sleep.

Wednesday was after all a wonderful day. That proves that there is always a silver lining... It is just a question of seeing it.

  1. Hi Annette,

    So nice that your Wednesday turned out great. That's what I love about blogging. I feel safer being myself... I get love notes from awesome friends... I get inspirations...LOTS.

    Hope your days continue to be wonderful, just as you are.


  2. Lovely ! All as it should be,

  3. Blogland is a good land to live in. I love you.....

  4. I'm sorry you had a grotty day on Wednesday, my love. I can assure you, you are absolutely not alone and, in my opinion, a bit of a grump on your blog now and again is a good thing. Life isn't always hearts and flowers. Sadly it takes a dark cloud now and again to appreciate a silver lining.

    So glad you're feeling chirpier. xxx

  5. I am so happy, Annette, that you try to find your silver line! :)
    Have a wonderful weekend full of lovely colors!

  6. Hi Annette. I don't know if this will be of any help to you, but a while ago, when my world imploded and I didn't know which way to turn, someone kindly recommended to me. I haven't looked back. Just a suggestion and it may not be any help but worth a look. Big hugs from England xxxx

  7. I believe in silver linings Annette! Keep smiling :) Pat xx

  8. Sometimes just getting it all out of your system is just what you need. Have a wonderful day and so glad you are feeling better.

  9. I'm glad things are looking better. I love all the sweet blessings in your life; thanks for sharing :-)

  10. Hi Annette. I missed your post yesterday, but just read it. I can certainly identify. Although my kids are grown, I have cared for my grandson since his birth, 7 years ago. So in essence, I am doing all of the Mommy things again. It is hugely rewarding, but much more tiresome, at age 54, than it was in my 20's when I my kids were small!!!
    And now, I do so many different things as well, that I often feel the same way you do. Over extended, and just plain exhausted. I so enjoy your lovely blog! And today, seeing your Maybelle flowers, makes me want to dig into another Maybelle flower afghan.
    Have a happy and restful weekend!!

  11. I hope the weather is as it is here in Wales. Sunny, warmish and lots of flowers. Tulips everywhere and sweet smells of daphne. Have fun!

  12. Also good to find the happy and there are some great ones there, have a good weekend.

  13. Hi Annette, I just found your blog from littlewoollie ..... love your photos, such great colours :)
    I've recently started my blog, it would be great to see you over there :)

  14. I'm glad the blogging comments help. Sometimes we all need someone in our corner. I think your garden looks fine, too much neatness just isn't right. Have a good day.

  15. Lovely silverlinings you got there=)

  16. I am just catching up on my blog reading after not having enough time in the day, and I am so glad I am not the only one not being able to fit everything in. Sometimes we put too much on ourselves to be super women! I am so glad that you are back in a happier place! xx

  17. Hi, I had a stop in your blog ( not the first time) and I have to thank You to share pictures of your crochet work.
    I love the colours You use and thé result.
    Your flower/ squares are beautiful. And I Am thinking to make a shawl like yours.
    You are inspiring and the colours of your post are warm for me (as I live in a snow country)

  18. Lovely Annette I am so glad that things are looking up for you-I completely understood where you are coming from as I feel exactly the same. I love the way you have turned it all around and looked at all the lovely positives - an inspiration to us all. Have a fabulous weekend Annette, sending you lots of hugs and loves
