On the wings of hope . . .

I write this with goosebumps this morning. I am watching the inauguration as I visit all of the One World One Heart participants. (It may take me a month to get to everyone!) The cheering of the millions and millions of people I see just gives me chills. So many people with so much hope in their hearts. Never have I witnessed anything like it. What an incredible and historical event to be a part of in our lifetimes, even from our homes so far away. I have not enough words to write what I wish I could and the moment is almost here. I'll just leave you all hopeful myself!

It was a beautiful day. My son and DIL say they were a beautiful couple. And they were soooo close to them, they couldn't believe it!

We are on our way to better days!

Hi Marsha! I love this image. Thank you for sharing it. Thank you for joining my OWOH giveaway! I had already commented on your giveaway so I didn't want to "cheat"! I hope your mom does learn to tat! Good luck to you! Whether or not you win the tatting giveaway I hope you encourage your mom to look on you tube for tatting tutorials. Many people are finding that to be a satisfactory venue for learning tatting when there is no teacher available!
