Nostalgia

I call this Hanging My Heart Out
A few years ago when the little
girls were still wearing dresses daily
I had laundered and hung them to dry
They look so pretty in the sun
All cotton lace and frills
I tried to capture this fleeting moment
I am so lucky to have had  little girls to
sew for. In this wistful moment it
occurred to me
I will not always have little
girl dresses to hang on the line
Every mom should be so lucky

What a lovely blog you have. I was so happy that you left a comment and I got to come see all the lovely things you photograph and your inspirational words.

I hope your granddaughter is faring well, too. Yep, I read quite a bit, several pages, in fact. I even saw your wedding pictures and beyond. You are lovely and have a beautiful family, too. Thanks so much for directing me here. I would never have found you otherwise.

I meant to tell you, I have corrected the photo problem in today's post.
