Much Like a Patchwork Quilt We Are
Some of us are bright and gay, some are quieter, more delicate
and subdued. Yet how well we blend together, The quieter
ones set off the colorful. The brighter ones accentuate
the pastels. Often, the more fragile pieces Hold the sturdy
ones together; Blessed are we to be varied. All of us are
stitched with love and tied to one another. Reap the benefits
of your sewing,Baste consideration into your life, Hem up
disagreements, and embellish it all with love. May there
always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always
hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand
of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart
with gladness to cheer you. The best kind of sleep Beneath
Heaven above Is under a quilt Handmade with Love.
gather - To sew material scraps together - The scraps come
togther - To make a Quilt on their laps - Lots of stories
and laughter - Keep them all amused -Always a dish to pass
- A new receipe to be found - Quilting, a tradition that
be handed down - To every woman in town - Some came for
the company - Some come to chat -Some come for laughs -
Life can't get better than that.
