I have three wonderful daughters, ages 50, 49, and 46. These little crewel embroidered pictures say so much about them when they were small:
The oldest wanted to cook and I'm ashamed to admit it now, but I didn't encourage it at the time.
The middle daughter liked to sew. Whenever they were playing with their dolls, she would rather make clothes for the dolls than mother them.
The baby girl -- well, what can I say? She liked to play, but she pestered her sisters to death at times. So we always told her she needed to pray.
The pictures were given to me as a kit, many, many years ago and have hung on the wall, reminding me of their different personalities and the fun they had growing up together.
