The Hope of Spring
My late friend Marilyn sent me a box of bright scraps. Beach-theme scraps. I thought of my young friend who has adopted a baby boy. Her mom, my good friend, has a house at the Jersey Shore, and the new little family will be spending the summer there. I thought that TJ needed a quilt for the shore house. I'd gotten it mostly together and then it set on the shelf until a week or so ago we had a dinner invitation from the owner of the shore house and I took the quilt along to give her then. Fabric with beach chairs and sunglasses and flip-flops. Beyond spring, the hope of summer!
Another friend stopped by and brought a small potted plan. It wasn't blooming on the day she delivered it.
But the next day it began to show itself. And in another day or two we had beautiful tulips.
The hope of spring.
