celebrating my 2012 One Little Word: delight
I wish you could have been there when I gave Brittany the sweater. I wasn’t sure she would appreciate the work you put into it — not just in the intricate design but how you worked to make it according to those “particular specifications” she asked for – long and skinny. But she did; she ooed and ahed at the color changes and cooed when she put it on.
But mom, that isn’t what I wished you had been there to witness. No, what I wish you had seen was how she purred when she saw the label you stitched at the collar that said Hand made for you by Frances McGown.
She turned to me and said, “This is what I love the most.”
