Today is a mile stone in my life. Thirty years ago today I gave birth to my children. They are triplets. They are all celebrating their birthdays today. I've been very blessed by them in my life. They are all good children and productive citizens. I have loved ever minute of being their mother. I'm also a grandmother now, which is another wonderful blessing.
It is a little hard to realize that time has past so fast.
When they were infants I needed a little bit of "me time". My husband was very supportive so I went to a quilting class for 2 hours a week.
The teacher was a purist and taught hand piecing and hand quilting. I was only able to take classes off and on. In fact it took 7 years to complete a Sampler quilt.
I retired last Oct after being a Computer Media Specialist in an Elementary School for 22 years. My children were attending the school and I was volunteering in their classrooms. The principal came to me when he learned about my qualifications and told me about them creating this position. It was a perfect fit for me. I enjoyed every day of work. It was hard to retire.
I loved my job, but now I love being home with my husband and being retired. I've gone back to the school a few times as a substitute and I wear a button that says "will work for fabric". I have had a blessed life.
