Pender County, North Carolina... 2 days ago...water continues to rise.
Houses gone, power gone, no access to food or fresh water,
no access period. Florence is still a nightmare.
Meantime, Lynsey prepares for a curly head tomorrow.
Thank you Ms Eithne, for the very cool head bands.
I have finally quilted, from 3 year ago...a favorite from
the brilliant work of Sujata Shah
Stitch loves it too.
Because Ms Stephanie and Lynsey folded some of my fabric,
I found this for the binding.
My son starts a new job tomorrow...A miracle.
He is a bit anxious...I tell him 50 miles into the woods means
50 mile out..and he is going in the right direction
Tonight he took his children on a long bike ride,
I am so grateful. He blew leaves off the deck, organized the garage,
did the dishes and the laundry and gave me a hug.!!.
He and I have the same temperament, we catch each other's angst and joy..
I have started in with Anne Lamont's encouragement...say..Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, every single day (Tender Mercies..my new favorite book).
I do not remember where I saw this...but I have all the fabric..I am so making it.
ALS is the dragon...we insist we will slay it...no matter how long it takes.
My man and Evan..happy memories.
At Emily's wedding.
My mother..showing off.
My grands enjoying Santa...especially Lynsey.
Staying all night with my mother as she headed to her next great adventure.
In memory of life's great adventures and great loves.
From my mother:
Then it Happened
The moon rolled over
turned out the light
covered itself with
a blanket of night.
