Briggy's Grandma Quilt
My mom has made all my other children a special quilt when they were babies. These quilts are very precious to my children. When I found out I was expecting, I asked my mom if she would make another quilt.
My mom did not disappoint. Brigham's quilt is full of beautiful quilt squares of green and blue colors.
Brigham is about three and a half weeks old in these pictures.
I am grateful for the many hours that she put into making this special quilt for Brigham. The quilt is a keepsake for sure.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
