So I've been working at Rose Path for about a year and a half now. About a year ago a woman named Jean started coming in to take classes and to knit. She had a busy summer so we didn't see her much then but since school started she has been coming in several times a week and has become a very boisterous, giggly, bright and cheery fixture around our shop.
Jean and I and the wrap.
Friday, she had me try on a wrap/scarf she had just finished. After she fussed with it for a minute she stopped and said, "When this you see, think well of me."
It took a second to register that she had just given a gift to me but when it did my emotions came bubbling to the surface. I have kept them under tight control (at least in public) since we found out we will be making a move and I couldn't get a hold of myself. I actually had to go and cry in the bathroom before I could get myself together.
I am going to miss many people here in Lindale, Texas. Thank you Jean.
