A Time of Thanks this Thanksgiving

Pin It
quilt block pattern mother's dreamTake a moment to say thank you or write a note to someone. A hand written note, a postage stamp and as Molly did with 93 words, say thank you. It’s that time of the year

From The Quilt Ladies
Teresa reached for the letter as she awoke, it was all she could think about. A plan white envelope and lined note book paper inside, it held words of gratitude and love. She had read it fifty times, but again she opened it and smiled as she read.

Dear Momma,

You have always said it’s better to be late than sorry.

I’m late with my thank you,
For a life time of love,
A lifetime of understanding,
And a lifetime of patience

Being here at college and seeing the ways of the other students, I now know I’ve lived the gift of love and never knew it. I want you to know that I do understand that nothing in my life would have been possible without your strength and love.

Please, know I love you and thank you for everything,

Molly

Teresa's morning moved as it always did, the boys off to school, Annie was dressed and Teresa was loading her up for Tuesday quilting, funny today they were all working on the pattern, “Mother’s Dream”.  Teresa patted the letter in her pocket just to make sure it was still there.

As she arrived all the ladies were in Emily’s kitchen, pouring coffee and laughing.  Teresa handed the letter to Emily and said, “This came yesterday, she has done it, she’s grown up.”

“Yes, she’s all grown up,” Emily hugged Teresa around the waist, as they both knew it was all changing.

At The Ringling - "Walk and Talk"

Pin It
Last weekend we attended our first class here in Florida. 
At The Ringling, HERE is their site

It was a "Walk and Talk" about the tree's of Florida, their planting and care. 
First class room time and then the walk with the Ringling's Landscape Superintendent, Kevin and Erin from the UF/IFAS Extension of Sarasota County.
Since we purchased my Mom's place we need to do a bit of landscaping. The class has made me want to take the Master Gardener's classes even more.
