Mother's Quilt Treasury

"Dear old-fashioned quilts 
with your patches so gay 
You retain all the charm 
of an earlier day 
Like the old-fashioned garden 
our grandmothers grew 
Our love never wanes 
for them or for you." 

A quilt sewn together with utmost care 
quilted with love is a treasure to share.

Hopes for My Children .... To Climb Higher

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon,

but only to hold a man's foot
long enough to enable him 
to put the other somewhat highter.
Thomas Huxley

Thankful for my Job !

alongside all my hobbies and play things.

My buddy brings late summer vegetables...

Small worries when my blood glucose is elevated.   I yearn to cook and bake.... to perfect my cooking skills.  But as such... my tasting and eating of an apple pie last night.  I guess it doomed me.  I tried to up // adjust my Lantus and my Humalog.   But Alas,  ## 214 am numbers  abt 6:30 AM

I'm arriving @ work earlier.  It's 9:25 and my reading has dropped to ## 72 mg/dl.  A bit of breakfast

Sharing an Internet Nugget of Truth !

“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. 
Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”

~Ernest Boyer, Jr.
