Celebrating.... my nephews, sister and how tenulous life is...

I am in Ohio and having the time of my life giggling with my two young nephews and playing with my sis... And because of my travels I apologize but will be announcing giveaway winner on Monday when I return home. I have so loved everyone's fun comments about the giveaway and thank you for your visits and photos!

Last evening I had a good cry in bed and felt overwhelmed with grief and happiness at same time. Knowing I would not be able to sleep without composing my thoughts, I created a little piece and emailed to dear friends to be able to "talk" it out. The support I received was overwhelming and humbling.

Tonight.... Was last night
Tonight... Is tonight....
Last night I watched the sliver of moon out my window and a loved one was resting and preparing to give life to others...
Tonight I CELEBRATE her life that lives on in people who received her heart, lungs, eyes today.
Tonight I celebrate my brother, Milla, surgeons, God
Tonight I celebrate life in all its mortality
Tonight....I pray
Tonight....

ps: I can harldy wait to post a gallery stroll of my sister's quilt collection when I return home. Prepare for a quilt show that will inspire and make you want to... CELEBRATE!

Love, Em
