Priceless Gifts


In my life, I've been given three priceless gifts: 

The first, from my parents, was my life and a childhood of love.

The second, from my husband, has been a lifetime marriage of love and loyalty.

The third, from my Grandmothers, is a heritage of women who use their hands to make beautiful and useful things. 

A heritage of quilters, knitters, crocheters, and seamstress's;  those who take scraps and make beautiful quilts.  Who take string and make sweaters and scarves to warm the cold, and dolls and toys to bring joy to children of all ages.  Who take thread, and make art.

Be thankful for the gifts you have been given, and show that gratitude by passing along the gifts you have to a new generation.
