I have been away for a little while catching up on some projects, getting children ready for the start of a new school year, and starting a new semester in the degree program I am taking!!! Gosh I am out of breath.....I really have wanted to post about this for a while now and feel really good about putting this up for Ya'll to see. One of my customers, a sweet person Michelle sent me a message one day asking if she could use one of my sketches/mini quilt designs for a tattoo she wanted to have done....she said it reminded her of herself and her daughter. I really love that first of all Michelle 'got it', the meaning behind this sketch as I designed it as a tribute to two of the most amazing residents I work with at the long term care facility....Myrtle and Eileen!! They are two ladies who have found each other and are always walking around holding hands, cuddling and just giving and receiving LOVE from each other.
Human contact that is what we crave, unconditional love, connection to another, to each other! We are all humans, does it matter if we are different in belief and or appearance??? I think not.
At the end of your life will you care?
Trust me I see it first hand from the lovely humans we care for....all they want is love and affection and understanding. I thank you Michelle for sharing this with me and everyone who sees the tattoo of you and your daughter!!
