those with whom my soul has been knit
they will stand with me
by me, for me
when things are hard
when things are messy
even if i make them hard
even if i make them messy
even when i am wrong
they forgive me
they love me
they find goodness in me
under the mess
in the hardness
in spite of wrongness
even when i loose understanding
they know who i am
they can see me
we are knit
all else falls away

with whom am i knit
will i fall away
will they

these are the women with whom i am aware of being knit. i am grateful for this knitting. my soul finds breath because of these knittings i have been given.

my mom and me

i am sure there are others, but today these are the knittings of which i am presently aware. gifts.
