Journaling reads: My Daddy Wore Blue Jeans
He was a farmer who believed in hard work, you get what you work for, and God. He taught us honesty, integrity, how to plan ahead, that the glass was half full, how to succeed, and what to do when we fail. (Get up, dust yourself off, figure out what you did wrong, smile, and try again.) He loved his family and I know he loved me. He wore blue jeans. I wore his blue jeans as a teenager on the farm, because at that time girls only wore slacks. His were comfortable, sturdy, gently worn and it was something only I shared with him. He passed away of cancer at age 63. My mom gathered all his jeans together and with love, made the pieces into this jean quilt for me with a red flannel lining. I cried when I received this most precious gift that Christmas. Now whenever I need to feel his love and strength, I wrap myself in Daddy's Blue Jeans.
TFL! That's a pic of my Daddy and I (~ 3 months old) and of my mom with the quilt she made me.
