I did it!! I finished Mama's three quilts for her friends (Blogged HERE and HERE). Yay!! What fun I've had working on these and the best part is that I finished them before Christmas! Now she can give them as Christmas presents if she want. Love you, Mama.
And just a little about my Mama...a memory if you will that helps me be a better Mommy, a better person. When I was little (elementary age) I tried out for an important role in our school's musical. I came home in tears when I didn't get the part. My Mama put her arm around me and let me cry on her shoulder. She didn't try to cheer me up (at first), she didn't tell me it didn't matter, she didn't go beat up the teacher that didn't pick me (hahaha); she let my little heart grieve and she sat by me while I cried. When I was done crying she wiped my tears and kissed my cheeks and I felt better. I was still disappointed, but I knew I was not alone.
As my Little Ones are growing, I want to be there for them every second. I want to keep their hearts from being broken, I want to 'punish' those who hurt their feelings, I want to keep them safe and sound. I have to remember that sometimes I just need to be there and no matter what they're going through that I'm with them. I have to remember that it's not always my job (even though I want it to be) to 'fix' things for them. The older I get the better I see the importance of helping little ones find their own place, their own path, and their own voice. Thanks Mama for always being there; I love you my sweet, sweet Nonny.

And remember the Blogger's Quilt Festival (Blogged Here) well my quilt didn't win, but I won a random drawing! Thanks to Rosemary @ The Knitting Quilter who messaged me that I had won! I was sick at the time and hadn't been 'exploring' my usual blogs. Thanks again Rosemary!
