Well, I am really pleased, and oh so proud. I have just finished a special Christmas Quilt for my grandaughter for Christmas. I have wanted to make Elisa a quilt for so long, but seemed impossible.

You see, before I got HD, I enjoyed sewing a lot, but after HD, it was difficult to even remember how to sew. And so, I have put in a lot of extra effort just to try and do this for my grandaughter, and I am sure she is going to love it.

The quilt is a gift for my grandaughter, but it really is a gift for me, for me to be able to sew again, it’s a wonderful feeling. I do’t know how long this good spell will last, but for now, this is one dream come true.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Dec 23/06 Christmas at my Aunty’s

This year Christmas was very special. My Aunty invited the whole family to her home for a Christmas visit. It was the first year in many years that my Mom and all her brothers and sisters were together, and that was very nice. But it was even more special, because I got to see my Aunty’s and Uncles. My Aunty Eileen is very special to me, she is the best, the very best. And she has a wonderful attitude about life, a wonderful optimism. She is one of those people that, if she is handed a bunch of lemons, she does not say, oh those damn lemons, they ruined my day! lol No, instead she says, oh lemons, let’s have some lemonade. Her wine glass is never half empty, it is always half full, and her love of life is very contagious. My Aunty’s and Uncles are all very special people to me, it was a wonderful visit.

We will go to Dan’s Mom and Dad’s on Christmas day, and that will be very nice too. And then we will go home, and I will get to sleep and sleep and sleep…..perfect ending to a good day…..lol….. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

Some day I will make a quilt like this one. This morning in church, was just the best, because of all songs that we sang, this one I remember most:

O Holy Night
Oh holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Savior\’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appear\’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born;
Oh night divine, Oh night Divine.
Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Behold your King.
Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory evermore proclaim.
His power and glory evermore proclaim.
