mornings are sometimes very difficult. filled w pain till the pills kick in. told dear hubby as he grabbed me for a hug, "easy! it hurts so bad this morning!" then i indicated area in my back that hurts the most and said "it feels like i am going to break in half right here every time i take a step"

his rsponse "well! we can't have that! 'cause then there'd....." be two of me for you to deal with, i finished for him. his big grin and gentle hug ended the exchnge more lightly than it had begun. hubbys can be so needy, our children who never grow up. but then, they offer the perfect response in the form of comic relief or something like, at the height of a really great "pity party" session, and put everything back into perspective. my back hurts. so, it's hurt my entire life. nothing changes. but it is mothers day, my son grown and successful in his career and as a being a mommy & now a grmommy is really an event worth celebrating today.

i hope that this sunday, for all of you here, is filled with the presence of those that make our lives so special...happy mommy's day to all of you at mqp...except you orville, bobby et al, guys all have to wait till june :))

o.k. rogue, so right there on the right of the jar lid bottom you can see the zipper. I hand sewed around the jar itself first so that it would be the only part of the label that would contain anything, then the outside. I thought that would secure it better anyway. so you un-zip it and it has the folded list inside. :)

spending my day alone except for my fur-buddies . i'm o.k. with it. I have a few stitches left on my label for Freddie adds a jar and it will be done.......totally done....... I decided to do something different. on my label which is a jar as well , I put a zipper. you can un-zip the jar and inside is a couple of fabric ''pages'' that have the description of everyone's personal jar, why I chose it and their birthdates. I love it!
