19. That is a good idea. I did get the quilts done. The whole family has been watching me progress on

them so I had no choice but to get them done on Christmas eve. It was worth it - kids finished opening their presents and then got the quilts which they immediately demanded their daddy put on their beds. I told them that the quilts are "for when you are feeling bad or feeling sad or even when you are feeling glad - then wrap yourself in them and remember all the fun times we have had."

They are my way of being with them even when I am gone. At 70 I thought it was time to give them a connection with me they could have forever.
