TODAY IS THREAD THE NEEDLE DAY
Sometimes you find yourself in that most difficult of positions, having to navigate your way through two positions of equal delicacy. Maybe you have to find a way to navigate the desires of two family members in an attempt to please both, perhaps you’re a public official trying to do the same for your constituency.
Whatever the case, Thread the Needle Day is a day to show respect and appreciation for those who have to do this every day and encourages those in this position to continue to try to find the middle way.
