I am so blessed. My mother turned 94 earlier this month and I was able to spend five wonderful days with her in Tennessee. We visited and enjoyed each other’s company while I did more handwork on my Creation quilt. I also spent five more days with my sister (who is also a quilter) and brother-in-law (who is in two poetry writing groups) also in Tennessee.
I hurried home so I could have an author’s table in the Cokesbury booth for the SC United Methodist Church’s Annual Conference where I hung up the quilt I had been working on and sold copies of my book. That too was rewarding in many ways. Not only did I sell several copies of my book, The Creation, I made several contacts with people who were excited about my books and the Bible Quilts project.
During the lulls between visitors to the Cokesbury booth I was able to listen to the ongoing conference and enjoy the heavenly music and visit with several former pastors and their wives. It was a very special time.
And today is special too. I’m home with no deadlines other than the ones I continually make for myself. I gave my dog a bath and took her for a walk. It is good to be home and take a deep breath and relax. God is good to me – all the time!
