Perspective

Today at MoPS, I was crocheting while listening to our guest speaker. Some girls at my table asked what I was making and I showed them a picture on my phone of my piles of hexagons.


One of my friends looked at me with one of those "you are so amazing" looks on her faces and expressed awe at the fact that I was capable of doing such a thing. But here's some perspective:

In my eyes, I'm only a novice crocheter. I know about 3 stitches and still have to google them if I go too long without doing any. Without some serious upskilling, I could not make some of the items that make me gasp in that same awe.

And this woman who complimented me? 5 kids, 2 of them not yet in school, spotless house, studying for a bachelors degree and always looks put together and acts cool, calm and collected. I'm certain that's not how she'd describe herself, but it's all about perspective, isn't it?
