But there's always a bright spot. My daughter, Kim, is a mother now, only by the Grace of God. Because you are so tenderhearted I thought you might like to read the blog post she wrote about her son. It's at sportsmomcooks.blogspot.com. While reading it I was reminded of a story that I tell often when I'm doing trunk shows. It's about Cameron's Quilt.
Not long after I started designing patterns, I had this idea to do a little Sail Boat quilt. Now, mind you, I've never ever been around little boys and had no idea where this idea came from at the time. But I made it and it's been one of my best selling patterns. I remember thinking that I wish I had some little boy I could give it to.
Time passed and Cameron came into our lives. When we had a shower for Kim to welcome him as their son I realized that this quilt was made for Cameron. I had actually made it about the time that he had been born! I knew then that God had been preparing us all for him to join us. What a wonderful gift we've been given. Now Bill and I are Mimi and Poppy to a sweet boy that we love as we never could have imagined. And we are ever thankful....
I hope your Mothers Day was special and perfect. Blessings~
