Where does time fly away to??..........can anyone tell me?
Hannah age 2
When she was a little over 4 years old, we took her and her two brothers on a trip to San Antonio's Sea World. We had two days of fun in the water and shows. It was there that she decided that she was going to grow up to be a whale trainer and to work for Sea World. Throughout the summer, I nervously watched her go under water in our swimming pool, to see how long she could stay under and then come up and be able to talk long sentences. Something that one of the Sea World trainers told her that she would have to learn to do. Throughout her childhood, any thing that replicated the "under sea life" from bed linens to toys, would be given to her.
Which prompted me to start cross stitching this under the sea design for her..................
20 years ago...........
You can see, that somewhere along the way, other things occupied my hands and needle.
As for her, she grew up to be a beautiful young woman. Sea World plans got placed aside and she is now serving her country in the Navy.
She is stationed in Hawaii, where on her free days, she surfs, and goes on dives to visit this under sea place that she has always loved. She has spoken of seeing the dolphins, being bumped into by a large sea turtle, and of how really beautiful and colorful this world is underneath the sea.
After talking with her about her adventures the other day, I once again, pulled this unfinished cross stitch piece out. I have decided that I want to get it completed and framed to give to her by Christmas.
How about you?
Have you started some kind of project..............
and has it sat waiting for 20 years or more?
Do you hope to get it completed one day?
I would love to hear!
