It was wonderful to get to talk with all these Mothers and others who so willingly shared some of the beautiful quilts they had created for area veterans, asked many questions about our Quilts of Valor Foundation, www.QOVF.org, and even offered to help with our Mission: "To cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor..."

The Program Director, Angie, gave such an eloquent talk about the Mother of our country, Martha Washington, who stood 'behind' and supported one of our greatest Fathers, George Washington. It was a wonderfully enlightening talk that shared several pieces of important historical trivia that I had actually never hear previously...Thank YOU, Angie!
This blog post would not be complete, without including two of my very special girls in my life who helped make this Mother/Daughter event even more special than it already was. My youngest daughter, Jaclyn, and her daughter, my DGD, Jade:
