Picture Mom, crying….


While I have finished my ATCs and they are ready to share, I got the link to the SPICE Synchro performance at Skate London and what can a proud (and tearful) Mom do but share? The words of the song have a particular resonance for a disability skating group and they did the most amazing job. I can’t embed the video but this is the link where you can watch it.

If anyone would have told me my darling daughter would be able to skate on a synchronized skating team way back on her first few times on the ice, when it took not one but TWO strong men to hold her upright, skating on those kids skates that strap over regular shoes and have a double row of blades, I never would have believed it. And now there she is.

My heart is bursting with pride and full of joy.

Your regularly scheduled crafting posts will resume tomorrow. Thanks for indulging me.
