All things take perseverance....

This blogging takes a bit of getting used to.  The message you write disappears, the photos don't magically go where they are supposed to.  All a bit of a learning curve, but I will persevere.
    Perseverance....I have been thinking about that a lot.  My mind and heart are never far from Nie Nie.  I check her sisters blog" C Jane Enjoy It" hoping that our dear Stephanie is steps closer to recovery.  Steps...there will be so many steps.  And then I think of her sweet husband Christian and his struggle as he recovers and is off to rehab and has to leave his sweet young wife behind.  Perseverance...yes, we all need some of that in our lives.
     So today I have pulled out a project that I want to work on.  A simple dress and some material that I bought ( on sale) at QIAD.  I don't know why, but this pattern and material reminds me of Stephanie.  Maybe the bit of vintage style and butterfly material that signifies in my heart that she too will be released from her cocoon of bandages and come out the butterfly that is.  
    But I am making this for a certain school teacher that I love with all my heart.  She is having a bad week too....but we all need to learn the lesson of perseverance.  So if this dress ends up something she will wear, or something she will just hang in her closet, I hope it will remind us all to persevere.  There can never be enough of that in our lives.

I didn't even see this one. Yay! Thank you for teaching me so much mama. I am praying and thinking about Nie Nie and Mr. Neilson too.
