How much like a patchwork quilt we are; Some of us are bright and gay, some are quieter, more delicate and subdued. Yet how well we blend together, the quieter ones set off the colorful. The brighter ones accentuate the pastels. Often, the more fragile pieces hold the sturdy ones together; Blessed are we to be varied.
All of us are stitched with love and tied to one another. Reap the benefits of your sewing, Baste consideration into your life, Hem up disagreements, and embellish it all with love. May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
