Day 105

I am grateful to see this photo on Facebook today. I made this gorgeous little girl a quilt when she was a baby. Her name is Rose so I used lots of rose fabrics in her quilt. It's been a few years since I made it, and to see her still using it (albeit with her toes sticking out the bottom) made me so happy. Her Mum told me Rose calls it her "special quilt". I am so grateful when a gift given is truly appreciated.
Thank you.

Day 96

I am grateful for another lovely day.... For skyping Mum today. It was hilarious. The sound wasn't working so we also had our phones going making calls. At least I could see her lovely face. I am grateful to work with Jack again today and he surprised me with buying dinner so I would have something to eat at work. I am grateful for the scene we came across this morning of the mum and dad ducks getting all their babies safely to the other side of the road. It was a real "awwww" moment. And even though I have to go back to work now, instead of working to 4 am, I only have to work until midnight.
Thank you.
