Always Fresh Bread- A Handmade Gift

A day to be appreciative of all we have in our lives. Olga, my DIL’s mother gave me a handmade linen bag with a special lining to keep bread fresh. Made in Ukraine.

It says in Ukrainian alway fresh bread
The loaf peeking out of the lace edged bread bag that’s cheese on the board.

After more than three weeks away, I slept in my home bed in a warm house last night. It was a long day of travel so lots of time to knit and reflect on a wonderful visit with my son and his family. I received many welcome home messages and it was lovely How good it feels to be able to travel again. To be with those you love. To meet a 2020 granddaughter.

I’m grateful for my family and friends and all of you who stop by here.

I found an article about Giving Thanks from Harvard Health Publishing and how it can make one happier. I believe it!
