MY BANNER IS FINALLY DONE
Well, it has taken some time, but Michelle from Shabby Creations has finally finished my banner. She did a great job, don't you think. This was a fun project as I put things that were meaningful to me in my banner. My grandmother Maupin died when I was very young, but to this day when I think of her , I realize how much she influenced me. She dressed beautifully in her time, was very spiritual and gave me the only doll I ever owned. Her home was one of comfort and warmth to a little girl who came from less than an ideal environment. Her house was close to mine in the little town where we lived. I would often walk over to visit and she would make me a wonderful lunch and show me her latest gardening successes in her yard. I surely miss her, and as I have gotten older, am beginning to realize no matter how long someone is in your life they can truly make a difference. So please, dear friends, open your eyes today and notice everyone and anyone who you come in contact with - you never know how much they will influence you.
