from Beading Daily ... Make Your Beadwork More Spiritual
The one thing that Native American beadwork techniques and stitches have in common is the belief that the time spent doing them to create beautiful objects is a way to honor the spirit world. So, take a deep breath and relax before you sit down to bead. Light a candle and focus your intentions before you pick up your needle and beads, and most of all, remember to enjoy your journey. * * * I so understand this and agree with it.
... Visited my best friend and her hubby today. He had been successfully treated for lung cancer and been given the all clear for the last 6 months ... Now they've just been told it has reoccurred and spread. He going to do chemo again, not because he can beat the cancer but because it will buy him time to be with her.
