Friday Fill-in

  1. The best thing my parents taught me to do when I was a child was to stand up for what I believe in and to drive a stick..
  2. However, one thing I wish they did differently was to not be so judgmental.  Most of my friends were (and are) afraid of them.
  3. One thing I’ve always wanted to try but haven’t is to make my own clothes.  I just don’t have the time and patterns kind of intimidate me at times.
  4. One thing I never thought I’d try but I have is quilting.  It never even crossed my mind that I would enjoy it until I actually tried it.  And I don’t really even remember why I started quilting, but I’m hooked!!!
  5. If I could give my 16-year-old self one piece of advice I’d tell myself to not sweat the small stuff and to be very thankful for the friends I had (and still have)!!

I was not ever and am not now afraid of your parents. Not even a little. I like them.

Also, I'm happy to be one of those friends that your 16-year-old self (and much younger self) still keeps in touch with.

I loved quilting... before I had an accident with the sewing machine. I wrote about it and was accepted into a Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology but didn't make the final edit. Maybe I'll post it on my blog after all these years. Thanks for reminding me! Hope you're having a great weekend!
