|Your Mama said you love turquoise and blues.|
Dear KK, with every stitch I sew a prayer into this quilt for our precious Makayla. Looking forward, as I know you and she both are, to having her operation over, getting her recovered strong & better than ever before, and having her snuggled up in her quilt all smiles and happiness! Love, Robin
8pm arrive. And none of you will will be surprised to read that my darling, exhausted, Kev ended up driving me and the 'She's GOT to have her quilt tonight!' quilt. The drive "To" our destination was a nail-biter, Kev was tense due to the dark and rainy weather; and I was tense as I sat in the passenger seat, thinking maybe I was a foolish old woman. Not to mention I was still stitching on the label in the pitch-dark using the light of my cell phone. (see pic) Kev barked at me when my cell phone camera flashed as I took this on-the-road picture, but I just couldn't help myself - as I'm inclined toward the dramatic. I kept thinking, what in the world will the family think, if we get in an accident simply because of this unnecessary delivery-of-my-heart? Even our 85 year old Valentine Double Dates had both, at first, said, "Wait until the morning!" But then I told them what our beloved Makayla had been through this past week; whereupon they both instantly changed their mind and emphatically stated, "She must have her quilt tonight!"
9pm delivery. In the end, it will not surprise you to hear, it was so incredible well worth it. Kev & I both sighed with the delicious sense of a job-well-done as we wrapped Makayla in her cozy, comfort quilt with her favorite colors. Her sweet smile spread across her face, and she felt loved, cherished and acknowledged; for she now felt, in a very tangible way, that we knew and honored the indescribable journey she had just endured. And Super Mama, KK, smiled a weary smile as she watched us loving on her baby girl.
Family love on a very dark & rainy Valentine's Day!
