Life and pillowcase dresses…

19 May

This is so sweet, I am having a really hard time without too many details our family has been sick for going on two weeks.  It is getting close to down in the dumps here!  I go upstairs to check on the children and finish my breakfast and there is my baby girl, who is already 11, doing her kitchen chore.  I take a second look and see that she is dressed, matching, and has a pillowcase dress we made last year and a matching bow in her hair.  She is wearing it as a smock top over her t-shirt.

 

This month her chore is sweeping the kitchen floor after meals.

I got her to stop and come get this picture.  I have a friend who tells me “don’t think too deeply”,  I have a maker who made me to think deeply.  While I’m watching my daughter, I’m thinking….”Wow, those pillowcase dresses really cover up t- shirts that are too tight nicely!”, “I’m so pleased and proud of my little girl, taking time and care to dress herself neatly”,   “I’m so thankful, she is doing her chore cheerfully!”….. Even though we don’t feel the greatest, this too shall pass….. Even though we feel pretty yucky, there is fruit from the years of child training….sewing is benefitting my children…

The sun has been hiding for many days here too, but the Son can still turn our eyes and our thoughts to things that are good, lovely, etc…

I’m glad my neighbor told me about these pillowcase dresses!

Hoping for sunshine and health!  Chrissi
