And here we are on the 9th day celebrating all that the letter E has to offer us.
Eunomia that which is order.
I have several days of the year that I call my favorite day (e.g. Winter Solstice, Christmas Day) but this one really is at the top. Here's why...
It's my birthday! Now, I know that many people find their birthday a special day, as it should be. But this day really is a day for so many people even if they don't know it.
First, it's Canada Day (akin to the US 4th of July). Happy Day to all those in Canada.
Second, today was also the birthday of Princess Diana. What an incredible example a graceful woman especially given the environment she lived.
Third, (now this is the part that always made the day feel extra-special to me)...it's the half-way mark through the year. And this is what makes the day potentially important to everyone. We should treat July 1 with as much celebration as January 1. Today, you have the opportunity to reflect on the first half of the year and decide if you are on course for the next 6 months. I intentionally wanted to end the Gratitude-along on July 1 just so that you could reflect on the past 8 days today and summarize on this day that marks "half-way."
I'd first like to thank everyone for participating in Eunomia. The comments have been wonderful, inspiring, insightful and meaningful. Please continue to post photos of your cowl in progress or finished on the Ravelry Healthy Knitter group. I'm truly grateful to all of you
SALE: I'd like to share the day with you. Purchase any pattern in my Ravelry shop using the coupon code (JULY1BDAY) at checkout to receive 20% off. The coupon expires on July 7, 2017.
GIVEAWAY: On Monday I'll announce the winner from the 1st day of the Gratitude-along AND the winner from today's give-away. YES, a give-away and it's something special. Last summer I was able to dye several skeins of fingering weight yarn on a base similar to Madeline Tosh Light. It's beautiful and I want to share. So, I'll send two skeins (~400 yds each) in two different but complimentary colors to the lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment on today's blog post that has to do with gratitude and/or peace. Leave your comment before Monday July 3rd at noon. Nothing random about the choosing the winner...I'll select a comment that really captures the essence of gratitude, peace, knitting, etc.
Here's today's letter..."E."
