What do you do when daughter grows too tall for a favorite sundress? You cut up a coordinating fat quarter and add a border to the bottom. We cut the fat quarter into 3 strips, each 6" wide, and then sewed them together. Then we sewed the strip to the existing lining of the dress and voila! we added about 3" to the length of the dress. It only took about half an hour to do. Not bad, huh?
It is bittersweet, watching them grow. They have turned into beautiful young women, so so quickly. I love watching them spread their wings- it's exciting and thrilling, and scary and sad. I miss the little girls that they were. But it's so exciting to see where life is taking them. I'm so proud of them.
The thing is- they're not mine. They never were. They belong to God and He generously and graciously entrusted them to my care for a while. And I am so grateful.
