Let it lift you off the ground,
Starry eyes and love is all around,
I can take you where you want to go.....

I am so happy! Guess what happened when I went to meet my new "mobile therapist" at our agreed upon location of Borders Book Store?
If you read my response to the first commenter on my previous blog posting, you will know that I am horribly shy in public or social events. (I know, I know.... I'm not shy AT ALL when blogging, go figure.) Anyway, I have a huge problem going out to any of the above type occasions and Blaine practically has to physically drag me out of the house---which is why Fred assigned me to this "mobile therapist". He wants me to learn how to cope with this problem.
I was explaining all this to the therapist (we sat on stools in the knitting book section, heh) and he asked me where I would want to go if I wasn't so shy.
I replied: "To one of the knitting meetings they have at one of the LYS's around here--- or else to a monthly Sunflower Guild knitting meeting...."
I told him that I'd always wanted to go to one of the above but that I'd never had the guts or courage to go. (So much for those people who think I'm "brave", huh?)
He promptly replied: "Then that's where I'm going to take you. You choose which meeting and which day--- and I'll take you."
Can you believe it?!!?
Three simple words: "I'll take you"....
You have no idea how much they mean to me.... because I'd never have the courage to go on my own.
(He also said one of the female counselors was going to take me to water aerobics class but I wasn't so thrilled with that....)
Isn't he the coolest therapist ever? He even made jokes about learning to knit himself. (But he writes stuff in one of those same mysterious notepads...just like Fred....)
