Gratitude

Oh yes, yesterday was a day of gratitude...I went to PT and told Jason my dreams of running and skiing again and he didn't laugh out loud!  But, in fact said he didn't see why I couldn't be there by Fall...can one love one's Physical Therapist???  or at least believe he may be the BEST physical therapist in the WORLD...I do love people who are filled with positive energy.

The next wonderful event was...drum roll, please...I emptied a project box!!!!  It has been months since that happened.  I have the top done for my quilt that will be in the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show this summer.  Sandy who will be the featured long arm quilter in the show will be quilting this baby for me!  

I could fill this box up right away but I think I am going to let it sit empty on the shelf for a while just so I can live in a moment of quilt smugness!  It is funny how something this simple can bring such joy to the heart of a quilter.  Do you use project boxes?  Do you feel the same way when you empty them?



It is with such gratitude that I live in this day and age...my sister who is in Europe and about to get on a River Cruise texted me her arrival and photo!!!  When I think about my mom writing letters to my grandmother overseas and it taking a month or more to arrive...well, I am so grateful that I live in a place and time where I have this ability.


I don't know about your neck of the woods but we are having beautiful clear crisp days and if I am not stitching I am on my bike!  Have a wonderful day!
