Simple Things Mean So Much

I gave my mom the quilt today and she loved it!  She even got a little choked up.  I didn't expect that.  But, we've had a tough year with the loss of three uncles, a cousin (her nephew,) and her brother has been in the hospital for weeks.  When things like that happen, we tend to look at life a little differently, family means more and so do the little things...like a kitty quilt.  My dad's eyes watered up when he opened the gift I gave to him.  It was a picture frame with three pictures from a recent visit from his sister which I just found last year after losing contact for decades.  It was a good Christmas!

That is so wonderful. It's always the best when the recipients love the gift. I'm playing with my new iPad. ;-) Merry Christmas!

Such wonderful gifts for your parents-- the quilt you made is lovely - I'm sure your Mother is thrilled with your gift of heart. It's hard to watch our parents grow older and be saddened by the loss of family. I hope this new year is full of rich blessings for you all.
