Butterfly KISSES, a tender sweet message from our children of the future...

My beloved works with some pretty amazing people, one in particular shared this wonderful and loving message that was posed to some 4-8 year olds back in 2012. I wanted to share this because even at this tender age, their heart felt messages can certainly be felt. They are wise beyond their years. Sometimes we just need a reminder of all the good that is in our world....

After each tender sweet interpretation, some new garden pics....Get a tissue, not for my garden silly for these ohhhhhh so loving words of inspiration from 4-8 years old... their words will linger in your heart all day..

Psst....have fun Butterfly Maker...




I just finished her....I thought I would call her Gidget....
She was as simple as can be and with RBD gingham
how could I possibly go wrong! 


Cori has been busy, our newest Paper Ladies called Bonjour Papillon....
she is just perfect for this post....

( this new pattern will be available next week) 



'When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.' – Rebecca, age 8

'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' – Billy, age 4 




'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.' – Karl, age 5

'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.’ –Chrissy, age 6 




'Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ -Terri, age 4 

'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.' – Danny, age 7 





'If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who you hate” 
–Nikka, age 6

This wee tot, has much wisdom....He will change the world......


 

'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt , then he wears it everyday..' –Noelle, age 7 


'My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.' –Clare, age 6 

I was at our garden centre yesterday, this white load had to come home with me....wink



'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.' –Elaine, age 5 

'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.' –Chris, age 7 

And this one touched deep in my heart.....

A four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, 'Nothing , I just helped him cry’. 



A touch of RED in our garden...look a checkerboard border...lol
and today I am working on some summer dresses to lounge in..
Not surprising there would be some RBD gingham...



Now go and share some BUTTERFLY kisses...
YOU can share this post, especially if it brings smiles to your heart..

Thank you children of our future, you MATTER!

  28. Ahh, sweet Samm - you have certainly made my day - been thinking of you a lot lately ... thought I would say Hi - Loving summer and the garden but not doing much sewing or stitching. Not sure why - taking a break I guess. Stay sweet and hope all is well for you. Judy C
