About Me

My photo
My name is Cyndi and I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful girls ages 4 and 1. They are the light of my life and the reason I need to take a creative break often and stamp, knit or crochet. My awesome sis got me into stamping about 6 years ago and I have a wonderfully creative friend who taught me how to knit and crochet recently. They are the reason I am still sane, for the most part anyway.

"Which song most resembles you or your life? Why and how?"

I am a member if the CreateCrochet team and our weekly question is: Which song most resembles you or your life? Why and how?

As is the case with most people I would bet, my life is ever changing and the answer to this question might vary greatly from moment to moment. Right at this moment, I would say that "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts most resembles me and my attitude toward life. 

Let me explain a little. Right now, I feel as if I am healing a little from a long battle with my hormones. I am losing my hair and the mood swings I have had are a bear to handle, just ask my husband. I feel as if it is getting better each day and that makes me appreciate all I have including my faith. Every broken road I travel down makes my faith stronger. It pulls something within me that I can not attribute to myself, mother nature, the Earth or anything but my hope in my God. Part of the song says, 
"I think about the years I spent, just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there, you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true"

Every time I go through something terrible, I remember that in my faith, God suffered the most horrific thing I could imagine, losing a son to a group of his other children. I know he understands my pain and is there for me. I am also a firm believer in that good comes out of all bad. I am stronger and wiser with each ordeal I survive. 



  1. Cyndi,
    You are only the second person I have ever known to spell your name that way! I am touched by your story and understand how you turn to God for strength. I too, turn to Him so manny times in my life. The song is beautiful and definitely fits what you have explained. I will pray for you. Thank you for sharing. Marianne/creationsbym2

  2. What a beautiful song to inspire your life. So often we tend to forget that no matter what God will always be there for us. It sounds like you have a lot to deal with besides 2 little ones to care for; it is nice to see that you let your faith guide you.
