Our older son just came in for a 10 minutes visit while picking up his mail. When he left daddy said “you look sad”.

I didn’t share how much I have been missing him.

Our son had looked at his younger brother and was amazed and said he has grown an inch since he saw him last. That was January 11th when the younger one stayed overnight at the older one’s place so mommy and daddy could go out for dinner. We hadn’t had a date in a while. I digress.

We immediately went to the hallway wall where we have the measurements of both boys on the wall. The younger one is 1 1/2 inches taller than where the older one was at 12 1/2 years of age. Our younger one will be that age in March. The older brother calls the younger brother a “beast”!  They are 13 years apart in age.

I did shed a quick tear while measuring the younger and placing the mark on the wall. I miss the older one so much and the depth of feeling is intense at times like this morning. I am proud of what he is doing in his life. I like the woman he is dating. Life is really good.

It really isn’t a feeling of sadness. It is a feeling of life. The part of the heart that always is held for an individual child. That special feeling when you know he is a part of you and it is a good part.

I finished this block today. It ended up looking like this.

Alternating block #15  - Kitty in the flower patch

The photos are for a project I started this past year and the main blocks are a disappearing nine-patch.

The alternating blocks are the yellow and creams with touches of blue running through them. Six design boards are ready to be finished up.

Block 13  - New Fresh Snow

I completed a red block this week and the blue one this morning. I always have leftover squares that start the next block in that color.

I started this morning with making a red block and decided to take out many of the red reds and all those that read with more pink. A tribute to  Valentine.
