Thursday's thought....

Today I celebrate STORIES....and am so excited to share a blog that I just discovered that has a fabulous wonky house quilt for a little boy that is PERFECT for reading stories under.  Go and visit her at jmbmommy.blogspot.com and enjoy her recent post of the quilt!


As many of you know, I love my Starbucks baristas and the local regulars that I chat with each morning.  I am so in love with the above sentiment for this year's cups and chose it to be my Thursdy thought....Often when I am in the line at a grocery store I wonder, "what is the person's story behind me?" and my fav Noah request recently was, "Mom, tell me a story from the field today?"  There is something intimate and wonderful about sharing stories whether they be of our life or reading aloud to a small child in bed at night or....



A fav photo of mine taken a few years back as Noah was learning to read and we were at the cabin at a family gathering.  I love how cousin Hudson is watching Noah and I wonder what he is thinking?  Grandma will be 97 this January and still one of the classiest ladies I know.  A classic family photo of the joy of reading together with 3 generations.


Antique quilts that my sis has acquired and I wonder what stories were told at bedtime as these quilts were pulled up close to youngster's chins....

A wonky heart creation by my sis, just makes one smile with the cuteness, huh?


And what is the story behind this antique of my sister's? 

What is your story....or THURSDAY THOUGHT?

Thanks for the link! Stories are so important to celebrate. They give our kids imagination a work out and also give them a history to build upon. I will be thinking about stories and what I can do with them in our family this winter season. :)

Thanks for reminding me to think about stories. My Thursday thought is, "Thank God it's Friday!" Back to sewing for this 3-day weekend. That last quilt is a beauty!

One of my goals is to get my mother's "story" written down while she is still here to tell me. And I encourage my kids to share their "stories" every day - we play a game called Highs and Lows, either around the dinner table, or, if we go out to eat, in the car to or from the restaurant. Everyone takes a turn telling the High Point of their day, as well as their Low Point. I love learning through this game what is important to my children, and what makes an impact on them, and it gives me an opportunity in yet another way to let them know how much they mean to me, as my High Point usually has something to do with my interaction with them.

Telling stories is so important. It's handing down treasured books and tales from generation to generation.

JMB's blog is in my top 5 fav blogs. I'm surprised you didn't know her blog before you joined the ring, and the quilt for Blondie is just soooo wonderful.
