Merry Christmas to All

 This has been a very tearful holiday season for me this year. I have been really missing my mother. I've been doing a lot of baking and cooking and that makes me think of her. But I have to admit that when Christmas day arrived it turned out to be one of the best Christmases I've had in a while. There was no fighting and everyone seemed to get along. Some of the neighborhood kids, who are friends with my kids, came down and ate dinner with us. They even helped clean up the kitchen afterwards.



We exchanged some nice little gifts and everyone seemed happy.   I got to sew for a few hours and made good progress on my Wanderlust quilt.  I'm working on the birds in the air block which is the corner of the main block. I need to make 120 total and have 49 completed. Slow and steady wins the race.



So from my house to your house I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

You are always in my thoughts, my friend. My love to you, I understand the mother thing. Mine is gone a year and a half now. She didn't know me, or herself, and she needed to go. But still, she is gone. Bake your little heart out, your mom is smiling!

Happy Holidays to you too. It is always a tough time when we lose a loved one. I'm orphan of both parents and foster parents since 1996. The pain disappears, the beautiful memories stay, the ugly memories fade. I agree with Quilt Swissy, she is smiling at you, still loving you. Enjoy the people around you and may 2017 brings plenty of lovely surprises your way. ;^)
