A new beginning...

I always loved the line from Closing Time that says Every new beginning is some other beginning's end....well, today I finished the binding on my little 4-patch quilt....and I started a new little dress for Lorelei.

I have had the material a while...with her love of pink I was almost afraid to make it. But, when she runs out of pink dresses, she is fine with other colors. So long as it is a dress.

We met Sarah Friday and got Lorelei again...she spent the night, then her mommy and daddy came down Saturday evening and spent the night. They had plans to meet others on Sunday. So Lorelei was fine with leaving then. Not sure how she would have been otherwise. She always tells me she wants to stay and stay and stay a long, long, looong time.

I tell you there are no sweeter words than Mamaw, I want you to sit with me...or I want to come to your house...or I love you with all my heart. I cannot help but wonder how much longer she will want to sit with me. So I try to just cherish the time she is here. I don't blog, or do much other than get my email when she is here.
