Todd McCray Rathburn
ATTENTION ALL CRAFTERS AND INVENTORS
My name is Todd McCray Rathburn, and I love to crochet. If you have a passion for creativity and innovation, then we have a lot in common. If your heart is moved towards corresponding with me, then allow me to assure you of my ability to intellectually converse with you on a variety of different subjects.
My life is an open book, I will answer any questions you may have openly, and honestly. I am 46 years old, I was born 04/27/1972. I am separated, with an impending divorce. I have been incarcerated for over 16 months for possession of meth and heroin, and I am eligible for parole on 9/30/2019.
Upon my release, I am going to be attending college to receive my degree in chemical dependency. I want to help others, through my experiences, make better choices so they won't have to do a life sentence on the installment plan like I have.
I have been using my much-deserved time learning how to crochet. My childhood is filled with wonderful memories of watching my mother and grandmother sew and crochet. I didn't understand how much love and care my grandma put into the blankets she crocheted for us grandkids, or the robes my mom sewed from scratch for me and my brother… Until I made a hat for my five-year-old daughter, every stitch is a declaration of love passed down from grandmother to mother, to son to daughter, I find so much peace and solace while I am crocheting. My mom is so proud of me and my work. She recognizes, with a mother's intuition that my heart is finally in the right spot. She taught me by example that love is an action word. She should have given up on me a long time ago, but she has continued to love me… Even when I couldn't love myself. Her actions define that special love only a mother can give. That's why I am determined to have that same impact on my daughter's life.
I am in the process of crocheting 300 hats so I can fund a trip to Disney World for us. When I talk to my daughter on the phone, I can hear my mom in her voice. When I look at her pictures, I see my dad's beautiful blue eyes. She's shares her grandpa's birthday (Jan 24th) unfortunately, we lost him in 2003.
It is my dream to have her look back and say "wow" my daddy loves me. Look what he accomplished from a prison cell. To have that same fondness in her heart that I have, when I think about the blanket my grandma made me. Sometimes, I can feel my grandmother's presence when I learn a new stitch.
I would love to invite all who are willing to join me on this journey of self-discovery and purpose. Even if we don't share the same love and passion for crafting, that doesn't mean we can't develop a meaningful friendship.
We can email, just go to Jpay.com and look me up. If you don't live in the United States, please don't let that stop you from contacting me. I would absolutely love to become your friend and learn about you and your country.
In closing, I would like to share a joke that my little girl told me:
Q: What do you call a cow with a twitch?
A: Beef Jerky
I hope that put a smile on your face, and joy in your heart. Until we meet.
