here - a hand


i finally sent my hand out to juliann. i embroidered 'here', as a gesture of giving, and also a statement of being. when struggling with an invisible illness, such as fibromyalgia, depression, or irritable bowel syndrome (or more than one of these and others), just being here is a feat in and of itself sometimes. i am blessed to have many people in my life who are living fully, despite pain and other health challenges. i loved making this, and i am thinking of ideas for more embroidered wisdoms or mantras. such as jamie's "it doesn't get any better than this." what do you think? anything you'd like to see in stitches?
