Three on Thursday – Three Circles

 

Three Circles

Welcome
I made the counted-x stitched ‘Welcome’
for my mom in 1983.
Welcome hung in her dining room
until she had to downsize
and move in with her brother.
It is not perfect.
How I agonized when I saw a mistake in the counting;
but I did not want to take out the x’s.
So I just left it alone.
Today I don’t even know where the mistake is;
I just enjoy the finished work.

Clock
Time is like that, isn’t it.
Time goes on.
Moment by moment,
day by day
until after years have past:
mistakes don’t seem so important
flaws fade into nothing
and we are left with the beauty.

Cups
Ice cream cooled cocoa
Hazelnut cinnamon coffee
Soothing peppermint tea
Healthy hot water with fresh lemon juice
Cinnamon stick stirred Apple cider

“Do you want cream or sweetener?
How about a cookie?”

All of these have been circled by my cups
without any time constraints
as I’ve welcomed my family and friends.

  1. Lovely thoughts! I have a couple of cross-stitched pieces that I made for my mother, too.

    Must go find a cookie… Thanks! 😉
