It's show and tell Friday over at Kelli's!! Hope you'll check it out and all the neat things others are showing as well!
Today I'm sharing with you a very special pillow.
When I was 23, we had our first child. The year was 1981. My Mom came up to North Carolina and stayed with me for 2 weeks. I had delivered Samantha via emergency c-section.(the section I was sure I didn't have to read in my pregnancy book!!)
As my journey into motherhood continued, I began to realize just how wonderful a mother I had been blessed with. I came across this counted-cross stitch pattern and cried in the store after reading it. I knew I had to make it for my Mom.
Her favorite colors were blue and white, so I found this fabric, and was so delighted to make her my first double ruffle pillow! I was very tickled with how it came out...and so was she! She cried when I gave it to her, and absolutely loved it. She always had it displayed in a place of prominence in her home, and that was such a blessing to me.
You know, I never even gave it a thought back then that one day she wouldn't be with me any longer, (sigh...) and that my gift would have a place in my home !
So now it is "my" special treasure and is my little love note to all of you loving, caring, devoted Moms out there. Know that your commitment to shaping the lives you have been entrusted with is of the utmost importance to this world we live in and to God.
If you still have your Mom with you, hug her once for you, and once for me, OK?
