covid 19 and life update

I wanted to let you guys know why I haven’t been as active as usual. Unfortunately, me and my family contracted COVID and it’s been horrible for the past few days. At first I wasn’t showing any symptoms except a scratchy like throat but then I started running fevers, having chills, and mild body aches. Feel a lot better now and the only symptoms I’m having is a sore throat and mild body aches.

Also, about a week ago, a dear friend of mine and my crochet mommy passed away. I miss her like crazy and her funeral is today. She was the sweetest person ever. When she found out I was getting into crocheting two years ago. She gave me almost ALL of her yarn, crochet books (the vintage kind…VINTAGE), magazines, she even gave me materials to make jewelry. There isn’t anyone else in this world that could take her place. She would always compliment me on how well I was doing and what a fast learner I was. Also, her sister is multilingual (Spanish and English) and from Porto Rico. Up until about a month ago, it didn’t hit me that she was too. So all this time I’ve been learning Spanish, she could’ve helped me but my dumb self didn’t realize it.

Please send TandPs to the family. They’ve done so much for mine and they’re struggling right now. They’re literally the most generous ppl ever. The things they’ve done for me and my siblings is to much to count. :purple_heart:

Oh sweetie, I am soooo sorry. To feel crummy and to lose someone so special to you. I think people who teach us things with a sweet spirit are the best people. Treasure your memories with her. Someday when you’re older some eager bright eyed child is going to want to learn crochet too just like you did. And you will teach with a gentle and loving spirit. :heart::heart:

We haven’t had Covid in our home, unless that’s what our last stomach bug was … :thinking:

We have lost several people that were close though. Praying for her family and friends, including you. I have always used my projects I make for people kinda like a prayer shawl. Praying as I make things for them. You may have that opportunity throughout your life to pray for her family, as you think of her when you crochet. Which hopefully will be often. Praying your grief will turn to joy soon. :hugs:

Loosing someone is not easy. But I can honestly tell you, all the people that loved her are going through the same painful thing you are, so lean on them, support each other in this difficult time.
Sending all my love, and also hope you feel better soon.:revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts:
