I was reading in a magazine of a sea change lady being given a quilt for her 40th birthday by her new regional neighbours.
The making and giving of the quilt is a local tradition to make significant signposts in life such as key birthdays, births of children, new beginnings and such like.
The quilts are made by different members of the community for one person. I just love the idea – so generous and welcoming.
It has me thinking that I should do something for my neighbours instead of bemoaning the lack of manners I’ve bumped into with strangers lately. I don’t want the negative incidents to have the dominance. I want happy things in my life so why not be part of it?
Be the change you want in the world.
