Tom's Birthday

My brother is three years younger than I. His precious daughter, Ann, and her little daughters had a birthday brunch for him. It was a warm fall day in Texas and the girls made up dances to entertain us.

The curtains in the kitchen I just finished making. I need to make two more sets for Ann. This is the first time I've sewn in years. It felt familiar, like an old friend.  Maybe I'll make the three little girls in my family some dresses now that I have my sewing place.

I haven't had any nightmares since I've been home. Enno used to wake me from them weekly for all the years I lived in Holland. I would try to analyze them. Now I think I never felt safe living in a foreign country.

Jenny, these are wonderful pictures! You look so happy. Safety is such a basic need. No wonder you had nightmares.
