Grandma found a T-shirt at Orscheln's and I found a yard of chicken fabric at The Quilt Basket, and when we combined them, this was the (absolutely fabulous) result.
"I Love Chicks."
Sometimes I'll see her holding both her hands over the chicks.
Today, Nora took quite a few pictures of birds in the trees and at the feeders, which inspired us to make a bird observation book. We went out to the orchard and set up camp with a box of crayons and the smell of grass so real I had to dream.
And as Nora prays, "Thank you, God, for this love." (And when she's been sick, and we've been indoors for most of the day, and we quarrel like caged birds do, it's not easy, but this is real and I wouldn't trade it for any dream.)
