(mini post while I pack for the conference tomorrow)
One of my favorite quilting grannies accidentally called me by the name of her daughter. She apologized and said, “I’m sorry. I think of you as my daughter.” And she said she bragged about me to her friends.
When my friend died last month, I missed many things about her. So much can never be replaced, but there was one–how she boasted about me. Her words weren’t factually true, but her pride made me feel special, worthy, and loved.
We played cards today, another granny said with (my friend) absent it was now her job to pick on me, and another granny said, “We all miss her.” I didn’t want to go, but I’m glad I went. Thankful for quilting grannies who teach me, every day, how to live.
This is a door prize for Moonlight and Magnolias, the conference I’ll be attending. The reverse side says, “Spoons, Spanks, and Happily Ever After.”
These are promotional items for Taliasman. No word on a release date yet, but here’s hoping!
Here are some more spoons. 😀
Have a wonderful Wednesday, and happy spanking! If you’ll be in Atlanta, stop by the conference. The book signing on Saturday is open to the public, meaning you don’t have to register for the conference. 4:30 to 6:00 PM at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast. 😀
