TOO OFTEN WE UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TOUCH, A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A LISTENING EAR, AN HONEST COMPLIMENT, OR THE SMALLEST ACT OF CARING, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO TURN A LIFE AROUND

"Meadow Frogs" is the name I gave to my Quilt for Kids quilt. I wonder about the little person who will need the comfort of this quilt and hope they do well. I felt a bit sad to know that this quilt is going to a child who is sick and hurting, but glad to contribute something snuggly and soft to help ease their pain. I am happy to see that several other quilters have ordered a kit, pieced and quilted their quilt and are looking to do more.
small dreams no houses as long as a train with places feet never touch no rooms decorated in hues stark and plain no notice of tax that could instead pay for college just a cottage wild ferns a yard stretching forever alive with prairie grass and sounds of pleasant insects making hay a trail to the river sounds of water faint lines of lights miles and miles away... this too then... a place to write where I can see nesting birds just beyond the wooden windowsill a small spot as plain as me where my words can hum in the quiet and where my simple heart is always warm....
