Important Things

"It's funny what things you think are important until they aren't anymore."

So says my Dad just as I sit down to write this post. He's talking about his own job, his own to-do list that he has put on hold while my life feels upside down. But he's right, and his words apply to me. If you saw the Fabric Mart blog, then you know that I had to pull out of the Fabricista competition. Even now I struggle to find the words, to balance information with privacy. Please, bear with me.

Friday night, just as I finished up the muslin for my little red dress, my husband came in the house complaining of a sudden terrible headache. Fast forward through two ERs, one helicopter, four brain scans, and one night sleeping in a waiting room (me, not him) and we finally had some answers.

He will be okay, eventually. It turned out to be less serious than we initially thought (though still serious). My husband is the most healthy and active person I know, not to even mention his personal willpower, and he WILL bounce back from this.

But until then, some things aren't as important. I will have one additional post this week or next about a long-planned October event, but after that no promises.

Meanwhile, do me a favor and hug your loved ones. Be nicer to them. Don't wait for a reminder.


  1. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers! xo!

  2. You are so right about what is important. You and your husband will be in my thoughts, hoping for a quick recovery. Hugs to both of you.

  3. You are so right! Hope all goes well. I will send a prayer your way. We just found out this year my husband has stage 3 colon/rectal cancer. I know how tenuous this life is! Love your family and friends extra everyday. It's so worth it!!!

  4. Keeping you and your loved ones in my thoughts. Sending love, health and strength!

  5. Will be praying for your family! Peace, comfort and strength to you!

  6. I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm sure you'll all pull through. Many hugs!

  7. Oh Beth. You must have been scared out of your mind.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself!!!
