This is a beautiful day. Sunday is my favorite day of the week, there is no doubt about it. Church and partaking of the Sacrament, fills my souls with a 'food' I cannot obtain anywhere else.
I am reminded each week that when I was baptized I took upon myself, the name of Christ. I cannot take that lightly, I must not...
I am part of Christ's family. I promise to become like Him in all I do and say, and where I fall short, He always fills in that gap, His Atonement for me covers those weaknesses and faults if I am trying to do my best.
There is a new page on my website that Maureen wrote-- she has been an NICU nurse for many years and these are her tips for making preemie clothes. Very helpful! This little hat is one recommended by many NICU units as they stretch but will also accordian a bit to fit and stay on tiny heads.
I am looking for a pattern for some teeny 1.5" socks we could knit to match. If you know of any links to preemie socks please let me know.
