Mrs. Roy is thankful this morning for her mother-in-law.  Mom left for heaven a couple of years ago but she left behind lots of love.  Right now I’m in my office with a crocheted shawl she made draped over my shoulders.  You wouldn’t believe how warm and cozy I am.  We have several afghans she made and many, many pieces of filet crochet that she spent untold hours making - everything from tablecloths to coasters.  I even have this crocheted curtain in the spare bedroom. 

Mrs. Roy also has a confession to make - I always liked Mom's gifts but I think maybe I appreciate these things more now that she’s gone.  I wish I had told her more often how much I enjoyed the things she made me.  I hope she knew. 

Mrs. Roy hopes whoever reads this will take the time to tell someone they love them today.  Don’t just assume they know.


  1. I love you sis! Just so you know - the cloth Christmas and Prayer books you've made for me and my children along with the 15 years in the making treasure quilt will always be treasures to me that I will one down pass along to my children. I love you!

  2. I love you, Mrs. Roy. And I love my red hat you crocheted for me. And all the post cards you send and the envelopes full of boxtops and the cards to my boys. So everytime I end an e-mail with I love you, know that I mean it!!
