Forgiveness, I discovered, is not just waving your hands in dismissal and saying 'it's in the past, I've moved on, it doesn't matter'; nor does it necessarily require that everyone becomes best friends again. When you look at the situation with new eyes, when you discover a way to see everyone involved with compassion, then the anger dissipates on its own. ~ Lonna Cunningham
Just Keep Knitting is the story of Lonna's journey through memory and healing, a story of forgiveness, faith, and fibre.
From the GoodReads Website;
One day out of the blue, Lonna found her life interrupted by delayed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: the anxiety, sleeplessness, and ongoing chest pains were the legacy of the chaos that took over her life when her first husband's brain tumour took hold and turned him into a stranger with a familiar face. During and after his illness she had so much on her plate that she just kept on pushing through life, fully occupied with a child to raise, bills to pay, and a life to rebuild. The old troubles were tucked away in the hopes that time would heal the wounds.
Well, time alone didn't do it, and Just Keep Knitting is the result of Lonna's healing work: both the story it tells and the knitting projects that she created as she wrote her story.
This book will shine a light of hope so that perhaps, someday, there might be just enough light for someone else to find a way out of the dark.
If you are ready to walk through some darkness to see the light, and enjoy a good knit while you are at it, then this might be the story for you. Lonna's ability to tell us all about the darkest parts of her past, while bringing hope of healing is inspirational.
I feel like a better person for reading and joining in the journey.
And even if you don't knit (I don't) the story is worth it. Just have some tissues close :)
