My oh my how time has been whipping past.
Seems like just yesteryear
when my children
were little kids playing in the back yard
and all of a sudden
we are looking for a new swing set.
Well maybe not until next year
but a new life will soon be upon us
and well, yes, we are excited.
So many thoughts of what to do tomorrow
are popping in to our minds
and then what to do the next tomorrow
and when will she go to school.
there are many lessons to learn
before she is off to school
and we certainly do not want to rush
the next few years.
Be assured that there will be some floss and fabric
in the weaving of this wonderful new tapestry
of our lives
and if one was to doubt that,
well, why even bother,
it is in her genes
and there will be no stopping it.
Well, until she stitches her dress to her fabric
and that has happened in generations gone by
so I am sure this tradition will continue.
The joy of watching our child "morph"
into a mother is a wonderful chapter of our lives
and one which will be followed
with many happy times,
mostly because we will see
both of the children growing.
Both: being our daughter and her baby.
I quietly sit back and smile, naw chuckle,,,
and think that if I had a nickel for every time
my dear mother told me
"one day your chickens will come home to roost"
I'd be rich with money.
Well, being with money has absolutely nothing
to do with being rich.
As I see it,
having your health, a family,
a place to live and good friends
is a blessing that makes one rich
and realizing that how you spend your wealth
is totally what you make of it.
Now, in case you have been wondering,
I have not forgotten how to stitch,
nor have I chosen
to move toward a different hobby.
Not in the least.
There are just a few projects not to be posted yet
but believe me when I can
I will and you may be a bit surprised.
did I mention
I can't wait to pull out the tiny patterns
with some stripped fabric
to put together a few little dresses
with some "Shadow Smocking"?
NO I CAN'T
So, Cheers to all you wait for
and lots of love to grow with.
