    I found this in my Mother's collection of poems. I thought you all might enjoy it.

    Thank you - I saved those so that one day if I get to be a granny maybe a little one will feel that way about me.

    Here are my two favorites:

    How Much Like a Quilt We Are

    Some of us are bright and gay; some are guieter, 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.

    Life Is Like A Quilt

    Life is like a patchwork quilt
    And each little patch is a day
    Some patches are rosy, happy and bright
    And some are dark and gray

    But each little patch as it's fitted in
    And sewn to keep it together
    Makes a finished block in this life of ours
    Filled with sun and rainy weather.

    So let me work on Life's patchwork quilt
    Through the rainy days and the sun
    Trusting that when I have finished my block
    The Master may say, "Well Done."

    Edie
