Mother's Day...

What my Mother Means to Me

Recently while going through my files I found this paper folded up and carefully tucked away.

It was written by my daughter, Tara, when she was nine years old as an assignment in school. It then came home for Mother's Day that year. Re-reading it touched my heart the same way that it did 22 years ago. (It should be clickable so you can read it)

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Such a great letter from your daughter. You should copy it on fabric and make a small art quilt with it.

There is nothing as pure in this world as the love our children had for us when they were younger. Of course, the love remains but it never seems as all-encompassing. Mother's Day makes me sentimental. Have a good one, Michele sent me to say, but I would have come anyway.

Michele sent me to say happy Mother's day to you.
What a sweet piece of writing from your daughter- I have a card which my father made for his mother in second grade (1937 as a matter of fact) which I treasure

What beautiful penmanship she had at 9! Such a sweet letter, no wonder you've saved it all these years :-)

Happy Mother's Day!

Oh what a sweet treasure and thank you for sharing it with us. I agree, it would be lovely as a part of an art quilt.

That is so wonderful! I'm sure that you'll enjoy bringing that out and reading it again and again.
