My Mom and Pics to Share

My life - it's a soap opera - and a very badly written one at that!

Last week, my mom was admitted to the hospital - she's stable for the moment, but still in intensive care - please remember her in your prayers. I've been spending every available moment at the hospital with her and Daddy - and trying to follow the admonition in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

I do want to share some pics of the Christmas present I received from my younger DDThis is her first attempt at satin stitch - don't you think she did a wonderful job?
Must share her story behind making this: Several months before Christmas, she mentioned to me that she to do a pattern that called for satin stitch, and she wasn't sure how to do it. "That's OK - just bring it here, and I'll show you", says I. Consternation! - lol! Obviously, she managed to figure it out.
After Christmas, she told me she worked on this while watching the Alabama (ROLL TIDE!) games each Saturday . How she managed to concentrate during the games is beyond me - Alabama football last year was intense!

On other fronts - CDB continues to recover and is trying to move on with her life. The DGS are settling in to their new school, and making new friends. DH has been ill for several days, but appears to be on the road to recovery. And I just keep on keeping on.
