A Day of Your Life

This poster is a mantra for me.  This week I have had several pieces of news that challenge one's understanding of life and you only can ask WHY???  Each day I wake up and strive to live the day as the most important of my life.  Walk forward in kindness, more listening...less talking, less whining more quilting, less shopping more girlfriend time...I want to "EMBRACE" 2013 (my word for the year).

I am so blessed because I am a quilter.  It not only immediately puts me in  relationship with wonderful people but, it gives me an outlet for quieting the mind when I am stressed.  Each stitch is a moment of control.  And so I am going to share with you Jerry's quilt.  Great guy...his wife is a quilter...all great guys are married to quilters, lol.  He and his wife have been married 50 years!  Since October he has had a series of health issues and yesterday was faced with surgery.  Please put some good energy out there for a full recovery.  Between October and January his wife started working on some basket blocks.  She got the pattern in Montana a few years ago and it is adorable.  As she has been in numerous waiting area through procedures and recoveries she has been stitching these blocks.  Each stitch, a moment of control. Each stitch...a stitch to the future.  Each block, part of a whole in life we create our moments, don't waste them!
