Hobbies have filled Gisela Paul’s life, not to mention her home.
Basket weaving, quilting, crocheting, knitting and baking — and the resulting products — are evident throughout the Radcliff woman’s home and beyond.
Baskets of all shapes, colors, sizes and purposes fill Paul’s home, including her kitchen, dining room and living room. A tabletop quilt displaying leaves and fall colors adorns the dining room table, and she has many others stored in her home.
One of my favorite holidays is near, Thanksgiving, the time when family and friends get together without obligation and share gratitude. It’s a time to reflect on the year and tally up the bounty of blessings.
Last month I was giving a talk in Delaware and a lady came up afterward to tell me it sounded good but she had nothing to be thankful for. As she rattled off her woes and all the things that had happened to her, I just had the urge to hug her. And I did.
