It is a tough task, but someone has to do it. Today, a car full of opinionated knitters (with honor and respect to EZ and no thought of plagiarism) are off to scout out locations for a yarn crawl & lunch. The goal is a nice bus excursion in early 2011 that will meld the members of two guilds for one fun filled day near a soCal beach town.
I have a seat in the car as I already have thoughts on where I want that bus to go!
I am just going along for the ride and the occasional sarcastic remark. Our scouting for the eventual yarn crawl is the ground work for another persons great idea. But, we are helping her out - not just scouting locations, but also fretting timing, group sizes, traffic patterns and all the nitty gritty that goes into planning an event.
Take a few moments to thank the person that organizes the group(s) in which you participate. Be it a local Stitch & B* group, a formal guild, a coffee klatch, book club, church gathering, travel club or just the early morning walkers in your neighborhood. We all have that someone in our lives who we and others rally around. That person who has an internal vision of something positive and enjoys spreading that feeling of connectedness amongst others.
Say Thank You to someone today. You will both be blessed.
