Spinning as Prescription
I met a fighter on Sunday at the Sheep and Wool Festival. Her name is Joyce, and she has beaten fourth-stage cancer. She beat the cancer and now she's working on the disabilities cancer left her with. They told her she was going to die, but she didn't. They told her she'd never walk again, and she does. They told her she'd never speak again, but she read books out loud to her dogs for months, and now she speaks well. They said she'd never use her hands because of the numbness and neuropathy, but she's working on that.
Part of her self-imposed rehab for her hands is learning to knit and spin. I was honored to get her going on a spindle on Sunday, and in that way, she allowed me to become part of her healing.
God bless you, Joyce. Keep healing. Keep spinning. Keep telling your story.
