A Simple Moment in Time


Raindrops drizzle down the outside of my craft room window as I cut and sew small fabric strawberries for Carrie and I to take to England next week. My mother's strawberry wind chime randomly makes a sweet tinking sound on occasion, and I wonder what's causing that to happen. Our heater isn't blowing, and the ceiling fan remains in the off position, but still, there is occasional movement and the sweet sound of my mom filling the room.

I smile to myself when I hear Mom's wind chime, and I imagine she is very pleased with our strawberry plans.

and other blog friends who are recording their

Your trip sounds exciting. Can't wait to hear of your strawberry project. Love your mom's wind chime. I have a chime mom gave me with angels. It clings every time the heat/ air turns on. Have a safe trip.
