Being Thankful and So Much More.....

May the warm sun shine down upon the very special Fathers in our lives today.  I count myself very blessed to have my own very dear 85 year old father still rather healthy, vibrant and persevering to be independent and enjoying life!  Dad is a man of faith and integrity, and loves his family with all of his heart.

My own wonderful husband, is a very special Father, a man who represents the very special qualities that our children revere in him as a father, and a true blessing in our lives in every way.  Now, with our four little grandchildren, he is loving every moment of being a Grandfather too, and enjoys being called, "Grandpa" and "Ba-Pa".

Now our sons have children of their own and are enjoying being fathers too.  As you can see, Grandpa is thoroughly enjoying center stage with 2 year old Emery and 4 month old Harrison.  Daddy Kevin is a very proud father indeed!

Our oldest son, Ryan, recently became a new father to little Kyleigh, born only a few short weeks ago.  This is his very first Father's Day!  

Life has been rather busy these past weeks, as my dear husband had some rather extensive foot surgery 3 weeks ago.  Although he is progressing very well, he is unable to bear any weight until next week, and hence my time and energy has been fully occupied, leaving precious little time for much stitching.  Alas, here and there, I have managed a stitch or two now and then.....

Because I am a left to right stitcher, the verse in this wonderful design, is incomplete.....the end of the verse is seen before the beginning.... Does that sound confusing?  Well, here is my progress thus far.

So, in between the endless tasks to be done every day, I hope to have a few quiet moments with my needle and thread this week, and we'll see what comes!

Be well, dear friends, and I hope that our paths cross with one another very soon again, one stitch at a time!

Blessings in Stitches and Friendship!
