I’m sorting and organizing the photos on my computer. It’s time consuming, best tackled in little pieces, but boy oh boy, is it fascinating! It helps me to remember the rich journey that is the Sewing Machine Project.
I look at my face in some of the pictures and think “Wow, back then I never would have guessed where we’d take this”. I never would have known how fast and how far the ripples would spread. I look into the faces of those who have received machines near and far. I see the smiling faces of all of the people who have helped us every step of the way, and I smile too.
“I am still learning”, Michaelangelo is quoted as
saying and we are. But look at all we’ve done!
And the biggest, strongest connecting thread is the love that is tangible in these photos. Love of sewing, love of service, love of one another.
I hope you’ll indulge me in the next few weeks as I dig through these memories. Thanks for the love, all of you out there! We send it right back!
