Happy Birthday Mom!
This post is in honor of an amazing woman, my mom. Today is her _ birthday (you’re welcome for the skip on that!) and from the moment I was born she has not stopped loving on me wholeheartedly. She protects me when she can, teaches me all she knows (including sewing) and plain spoils me rotten whenever I am with her. Before I left for Kenya I asked her if she’d be willing to make me a small quilt… just something I can have with me overseas to remind me of her, to wrap up in and feel loved when I’m homesick. She accepted and went ABOVE and BEYOND what I ever could have imagined! In addition to working out a fun pattern with some of my fav Amy Butler prints, she surprised me and gathered about 50 notes from family and close friends and hand-traced them onto fabric. The entire back of this quilt is filled with reminders of love and words of encouragement. There are even handprints from both of my parents on both sides so when I wrap the quilt around me I get hugged! What a lady! Thanks mom for all you do and who you are. I praise God for creating such a loving mom for me. It’s your birthday, yet we are the ones who are blessed. BIG hugs and kisses to you… love your favorite youngest daughter!
