Thanks for the gift.........

I saw my brother this week, and he gave me this photo........It is me and my older sister. He has been given the task of going through all of mothers pictures, and believe me there are 1000's. I had to smile when I saw this picture though, I had not seen it in years. If it were clearer you would see the beautiful detail in the handmade dresses we are wearing that match. I remember mother saying that she too had a dress like it that she made to match us. Of course, she was never in the pictures always taking them. As I sat this week sewing and making drapes for Adam's new house I thought about what a gift my mother had given me in teaching me how to sew. It has done many things for me in my life. It has made an income for me for sometime, I was especially popular when Adam played football, because I sewed all the patches on the letter jackets, I've altered many a girlfriends or neighbors dresses, and I have done many darling nursery's for clients and friends. I owe a lot to my mom for teaching me this talent. Thank you mother and to you goes all the glory. I just want to say to all of my friends who still have your mama, give her a big hug for me and think about how much they mean to you while they are still here. Happy Holidays, Lauri
