To watch a child conquering crochet is something truly inspiring. And even if she isn't "hooked" yet I feel great knowing that a younger generation can do this art and that maybe it will be something she turn to when everything else will be computerized and controlled by buttons and digital touch screens when she gets older... Who knows what the future will look like when she becomes a young woman in 15 years?
I feel like a good mother teaching her something authentic, something creative, soothing and stimulating. For stressful days to come in her future when she needs to center her soul and have a moment of stillness. Now I just need to teach her how to cook, bake, knit, cross stitch, sew, grow her own vegetables and how to preserve them! That would be the ultimate accomplishment for me as a mother. With those skills on her hands I don't have to worry. With those skills on her hands I know she will have a great, fulfilling and healthy life.
