    I have found this great poem (author unknown) that I think would make a great addition to a family quilt - I would probably put in the center block along with the family name. I have it framed with my collage of family pictures. I cut a round mat for it and put in square frame. heres what it says:

    Our Family
    is a circle of strength
    and love. With every birth
    and every union, the circle
    grows. Every joy shared adds
    more love. Every crisis faced
    together makes the
    circle stronger.

    Just thought I would share with you~It sometimes helps me to read this especially in times of crisis. cheryl :D

    p.s. The spacing I put in didnt show up but if you put in the right spacing , the poem almost looks like circle especially when framed in a circle!!

    A friend just showed me a bracelet she was given from her daughter with each line on this poem on a charm. I think it is just lovely.
