Square & Wish #9 - Edwards Air Force Base, California
We have lots of good military friends and this came from a family we met and befriended at our last base in California. Chrissy & Rob's daughter's are close to Eriks age and they all played wonderfully together so when we moved, we really missed Meghan and Jenna as playmates for Eriks. They got along so well. Now the Bills family will be moving to England and we will miss them very much.
I have to give big kuddos to Chrissy for this quilt square. It was something so totally unexpected. One of the books I absolutely love to read to Eriks is "Guess How Much I Love You" with Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare. I recently discovered that I can order this book in the Latvian language through Balticshop.com (so I will be doing that shortly).
Here's what the Bills' wish was for Emilija:
Two different lives
Shaped to make one,
One became your guiding star,
The other became your sun.
The first gave you life,
And the second taught you to live it,
The first gave you a need for love,
The second was there to give it.
May God bless and keep you all the days of your life.
Rob, Chrissy, Meghan & Jenna
Thank you so very much gang!!!
