Needle and Thread~

and snow here...I just know Spring is around the corner...I can feel it...can't you?! 
Warm wishes for a lovely day~Kathy

Remembering a Special Day~



             Always I have a chair for you in the smallest parlor in the world, to wit, my heart~
                                                                                                                                 Emily Dickinson

                I can remember it like it was yesterday...but in reality it's been 29 years of yesterdays!   This is a picture of our daughter Jennifer, our very first child-with her first-our
granddaughter Adalie, and today is her birthday!  You know,  I can remember so many of the smallest moments...that first look at her sweet little face...her first cry (I cried too!) ...that wonderful feeling of holding her close and watching her fall asleep in my arms... her first steps...fast forward to the fun shopping days and her first car...her first date...leaving her at college(oh my!)...meeting "the one"...wedding plans...and then ...a baby of her own! (now two!)  Of course she will always be my daughter, but along the way she has  become a sweet friend and a comfort to be with.  And now she is on her own journey of motherhood and making her  special memories with her children..it is a sweet sweet time...that stays in your heart forever!  Happy Birthday Jennifer!
             ~ I'm looking forward to the Spring along with all of you!  I am longing for warmer
weather..won't that be just wonderful!  I just read a quote that I feel describes this winter season best..."If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant"~Anne Bradstreet
Looking forward to those warm and pleasant days! Wishing each one of you warmth~Kathy

My Sweet Valentine~


~My heart to you is given,
  Oh, do give yours to me;
  We'll lock them up together
   And throw away the key.
       ~ Frederick Saunders













            Wishing you a lovely Valentines Day with the ones you love the most!

Love never fails~

   "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself,
    is not arragant; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked,
    keeps no accounts of evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth,
    bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 
    Love never fails.."   I Cor. 13:4-8
