Mia's 94th Quilt Square: Dayton, Ohio

Another scrapbooker and fellow police department co-worker, Cindy A, sent this one. She included the most adorable sticker that says "Babies! What a wonderful way to start people!" and it has a little Asian girl on it. Up in the top corner is a Chinese proverb which reads "If you get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through."

Her wish reads "May today and every day of your life bring you hopes for tomorrow- because hope gives us all our reason for trying. May each new day bring a feeling of excitement, joy and a wonderful sense of expectations. Expect the best and you'll get it. May you find peace in the simple things, because these are the ones that will always be there. May you always feel secure and loved. May you realize the importance of patience and accept others for what they are. With understanding and love, you'll find the good in every heart. May you remember good times and forget sorrow and pain, for the good times will remind you how special your life is. Let your life speak. Above all, be happy with yourself."

Very good advice! Down at the bottom she wrote the same thing my mom put on her wish card "Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." I guess this is something all moms have figured out already. I can't wait for that day.

Thanks Cindy!
