Spread the Love
Guest Artist: Karen
Blog: She Uses Her Words
I saw this quilt on Karen's blog and knew immediately that I had to show you her amazing talent!!! You know how much I love anything hearts, anything sewing, and anything quilting!!! And to me, this beautiful piece is a reminder of the importance of love in our lives...It is also easy to take for granted. I can just imagine that if someone has Karen's beautiful creation on their lap, they would feel loved, no doubt!!!
Maybe in our attitudes, we could all be like a virtual quilt in that if people come in touch with us they feel more love. Isn't that a wonderful goal to strive for? Especially in traffic or in a long line at the grocery store?
I remember a few months ago, I was at the post office and was frustrated by the line...I kept thinking, "Cindy, just spread love." So, I started to talk to 2 ladies ahead of me...It turned out that I had some stamps in my purse, gave it to them, and saved them a wait in the long line. I thought that was an opportunity to just do something nice for someone. I think that we should look for those magical opportunities.
We can even find those opportunities on here with a sweet comment that makes someone's day...We don't know what an "I love your red apron" could do for someone! It sounds simplistic perhaps, but it's those little gestures that make living so much brighter.
So "Spread the love" just as Karen did by making this beautiful creation....And thanks, Karen for this lovely reminder.
And friends, could you please do me a favor and click on Karen's link up above and say "hi?" It would be wonderful if you would!!!!
And one more thing....On Friday I will ask a question about something and can't wait to read your answers!!!
