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."
