Good morning friends,
Is anyone here? Have I been away long enough?
While I was away, I turned 46!
My parents sent me a package through the mail for my birthday and inside was a marvelous pillow. Using a quilt square that I hand-stitched together as a child and fabric and a hand crocheted doily out of her collection of keepsakes from her grandmother, mom thoughtfully sewed a pillow for me, and sent it with a note of blessing for the hands who worked together to make it: her own hands, her grandmother’s hands, and her daughter’s hands.
I look at it every day. Really look, with my eyes and with my heart.
It graces our master bed. Which I am sitting upon as I type, with cats, a mug of coffee, a book, a notebook, and the remote.
We are loved.
What a beautiful piece — a reminder of wonderful people and times!
So special and meaningful.
What a treasure.
Happy birthday, dear Shanda. What a meaningful gift from your sweet mother. I hope you have a wonderful year remembering how much you are loved by your family, friends and Him. 💖
