“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”  -Calvin Coolidge

Who inspires you?

We all have people that inspire us, in all aspects of our lives. If it’s your family life, your work life, the creative side of your life, or your spiritual life, there is probably someone you look up to.

Someone who makes us want to be better.

Someone we wish we could be half as good as in whatever it is they inspire us to do or be.

When it comes one of the things I love to do best, it’s my Nana that inspires me. She’s the one that taught me how to sew.

She hasn’t always lived close to me but when she did, for about 2 and a half years, she cultivated in me a love for sewing. She was my homeschool teacher, so I was at her house 3 times a week. Some days we would just set school aside and sew or bake all day.

I’ll never forget the day we made a quilt to send to an orphanage. There is such a special feeling you get when you know you’re doing something to make a difference in someone’s life.

I’m so thankful for the time we had together on those days. She still inspires me, even though she’s in Oklahoma and I’m in Washington. I love her so much and wish we could be closer so we could have sewing days and she can teach me new things and help me to better myself.

Even though I was there for school, I loved the time spent at their house. My Papa was always teasing me about the boy I liked, calling him my boyfriend, even though he wasn’t, and my Nana teaching me. Whether it was school, sewing, baking, or knitting, we were always busy on some project.

To those of you who have your grandparents close to you, cherish the moments you have with them.

I hope that one day I will be half the seamstress and lady she is!
