A GIVEAWAY WIN AND "CONSIDER HOW THE lillies"

I was so excited to win this giveaway....isn't it awesome??? Jerre over at fabricartist, she was the one with the wonderful giveaway. Thank you soooooooooooooo much.... I just love the fall colors....!!!


Okay son #3.....now if you know this young man, he shows very little emotion (takes after my husbands side), he doesn't like to be hugged and he does not give gifts....not much(he is very tight with his money, takes after me). So when this CD came in the mail....I opened it up....and didn't see his name on it...so.....I couldn't figure out who sent this to me, his name was not even in the running. Finally after searching everything, I found a postcard and in it said, "Happy Mothers Day" and his name. I cried.....for 3 years the CD cover and the note sat (we had double sinks and inbetween was a spot for sitting and putting make up on)...it sat there...it collected dust.....it was moved and cleaned under but never taken from that spot until we moved here. Every morning and evening that is what I would see.... He just didn't go to a store to get this CD, he had to call or go online and order it and have it sent....took alot of thought and...yes, something he would not admit...alot of love.... He was the first to call and wish me a Happy Birthday this year (yes tears again)...see I don't need gifts.

Aren't sons (and daughters) wonderful?

So have you ever taken the CD out and listened to it?

Needled Mom said...

Oooooh....I love those luscious fabrics. GREAT colors!

Wonderful story about your son. Yes, mothers do not need fancy or expensive gifts.

Pat said...

They don't turn out that way on their own...you and hubby did a good job with them, obviously! NICE fabrics in that giveaway. Do you have plans of what to make with them yet?

Julia said...

Those are those precious moments in a mother's life that make it all worthwhile! :~)

Does that mean it's your birthday? Is so, happy birthday! I love that CD! I cry every time I hear the song "Consider the Lilies." What a very thoughtful son, even if he won't admit it! I hope my kids grow up to be that thoughtful.

Ms. Barb, what are your plans for that yummy fabric? I just love the range of Autumn colors.

I love your stories about your sons. I have two sons, not five, and a daughter and my sons are so sweet and thoughtful.

Congratulations! I am glad someone deserving won. (since it wasn't me! LOL)

Those folks that don't show a lot of emotion often have a lot going on inside that isn't seen. I am glad he let you have a peek inside.
