History is a tapestry woven from the threads of our individual lives

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Thanks to JSTETSER whose blog last week prompted my thoughts this morning.

She wrote:
Your life is like a lovely quilt, often made from scraps of this or that.
Work carefully, and know that your life
is a masterpiece!

This photo appeared in our local newspaper last Mothers’ Day in a “Mom & Me” feature. It was taken 46 years ago.

My Mom is gone now, but I’d like to expand and extend JSTETSER’s beautiful thought to our SP community. All of our individual threads create a beautiful tapestry of success. I’m so happy to be part of it.

    Happy Mother's Day! The little scraps can seem so insignificant and unimportant: but we are stitching together something warm and wonderful.
