This photo is up there with my all time favorites, and is one I've been meaning to pop in here to share with all of you in case you had missed it on Jodi's Facebook page for her blog Tickle & Hide. As I sit here it feels like such a perfect day to share it. It's story makes me smile and feel happy in the midst of the crazy and busy right now. Lately it feels like time is speeding up each day. Like I can’t move fast enough and I can’t catch up. But with all that demands my time and attention, this blog makes me stop. And these days I'm realizing more and more what a gift quilting and this blog are. My gratitude grows as I continue to learn just how important this all is to me. I want to write a million stories about how much it's all influencing my life, but I rarely take the time to. I want the world to know how full and blessed I feel because of it. And how my life is made even better because of all of you. It's far from perfect and never without daily obstacles and life's challenges. And even when I can't feel it, I know, it's still, very, very good.
