Well hello friends.
How was your day of rest? I had a good day. I decided to re-design the pattern I made last week, and I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new one. I can not wait to share it with everyone. I honestly think it's my best yet and it involved working with 2 stitches I am not really familiar with, especially without instructions.
Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. If I wasn't coming off from being sick, and still not able to eat very much, I think I might have celebrated Thanksgiving twice this year, LOL.
I was asked yesterday what I was thankful for... More then I can blog in one day. Mostly that God has His hand carrying me, even in my darkest hour (and that was last week by the way) I knew He was there with me. I am thankful for my family (most of the time lol) I am thankful for people I have yet to meet in person that care enough to pray and encourage me when times are hard. I am so blessed.
A brief history on Columbus day as well...
Today we take for granted that the world is round. In the fifteenth century, however, most people believed the world was flat. They thought that monsters or a trip over the edge of the earth waited for anybody who sailed outside the limits of known territory. People laughed at or jailed others who dared think that the world was in the shape of a globe.
Americans might not have a Columbus Day if Christopher Columbus had not been born in Italy. Out of pride for their native son, the Italian population of New York City organized the first celebration of the discovery of America on October 12, 1866. The next year, more Italian Organizations in other cities held banquets, parades and dances on that date. In 1869, when Italians of San Francisco celebrated October 12, they called it Columbus Day.
In 1905, Colorado became the first state to observe a Columbus Day. Over the next few decades other states followed. In 1937, then- President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed every October 12 as Columbus Day. Since 1971, it has been celebrated on the second Monday in October.
