5 Minutes For Mom: Mother's Day Photo Contest

Motherhood: Is about being wrapped up in warmth and love.

Not only was this a lovely, quiet nap with my fourth baby, but I am napping on my treasure from my mother. My mother, sister and I picked out this fabric. She sent it to her grandmother, who made the quilt for her. When my mother passed away I received the quilt and I cherish it and the memories that go with it. I see it and remember sorting through fabric with my mother and sister, I see it and I imagine my great-grandmother squinting over each stitch and putting her heart into each square. Motherhood can't be wrapped up in one picture or one phrase but this one covers so much of it to me.
