I liked this....

I came across this and thought it was wonderful so I had to share it with all of you.

A Stitcher's Prayer

Lord, grant that I may see to stitch
Until my dying day,
And when my last short thread is clipped
And scissors tucked away,
The work that I have done live on,
That other folk may see
The pleasure I have known, Lord
In the skill you gave to me.

--Mary-Dick Digges (1934-2001)
