Calling All Quitters! Today’s Your Day!

  1. I second Rebekah’s comment. I can’t like this post enough, and I’m reading it way after the fact! Your play on words always makes me smile by the way. If people are groaning, then they’d groan at me too. Of course, I’ve had a lot of people groan at my sense of humor. So maybe we’re in good company.

  2. May I tell you a story of an over eager mama on Black Friday from two years ago?… she bought fabric for three quilts because it was such a good price. Only one of them has been completed in that time, and though quilt kinda feels like quit right now, I am encouraged by your post and reminded that there are different kinds of stitches that have been woven into the fabric of my family and church in those last two years. My prayer is that those stitches will count for much more than the ones my machine could make. Besides flannel doesn’t work too well for summer!
    As always, I appreciate your encouragement Pearl. Thank you for making spiritual concepts so vivid!

    1. Rachel, I love your story! Beautifully shared. Those stitches definitely count for a lot more than physical stitches in tangible quilts. (And hey, you still made one!) And I hope you know, you are a beautiful example of being connected to others. Hugs sweet sister!

  3. LOVED this! So now on days when that “QUIT” urge creeps in, this post is going to come to mind and provide that well needed “L” to help me understand my place in this world. Thank you for words of encouragement Pearl : ) .

    1. Awww, thanks Mama, the lovely and talented photographer! 🙂 Your quilt photo fit perfectly. Thanks for being amazing! I remembered you making quilts while I wrote. We’ll keep reminding each other we’re quilt pieces! Hugs!

  4. What a lovely post! Yes, I get sucked into the competition game when I check how many followers I have on Twitter, as if having tens of thousands would make Twitter more personally engaging. Not!

    Now, if I think in terms of your quilt analogy, I can say that the center piece might be surrounded by a few dozen others, but it doesn’t make the center piece any more valuable than, say, the corner piece that touches only a few. Oh! I like your analogy.

    1. Thank you, Diane! And here I am trying to believe what I wrote and NOT check FB and be worried because only one person liked the post and maybe that means this was all just a bunch of — uh, so thanks, Diane. 😉 (I do believe what I wrote, but it’s easy to get sucked into that competition game, isn’t it?) Maybe I ought to hang a quilt next to my computer… I love your thoughts about value. 🙂
