As a girl, Judith made money selling homemade potholders, the kind no one would ever use to actually hold a pot. But people bought them anyway.

Judith had no idea why.

But she loved spending sunny days on her parents’ porch, weaving the loops over, then under, over, then under.

The weather was kinder then. On a porch of her own, Judith couldn’t remember when she’d last seen the sun. With the stress of her job, she was the loop of yarn being stretched over, then under.

A small voice broke her reverie.

“Hey lady! Buy a potholder?”

Judith smiled.

    • There are three ways to do it. If you are blogging with WordPress, there is a word count shown in the lower left screen when writing posts. What I normally do is write it in Microsoft Word and use the Word Count tool under Tools. And if you don’t trust machines, you can just count them up yourself.
