Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..March 30th

March 30th…….“SHARE ONE OF YOUR MOTHER’S TALENTS THAT YOU SAW AS A LITTLE BOY ON YOUR FARM IN MINNESOTA”?

POEM – “Mother’s Nicest Gift” by N. Elliott Noorlun (from 5/5/2010)……Our mother, Clarice, LOVED to quilt!!! This analogous poem parallels her personal traits with her talents of quilting; thus “Mother’s Nicest Gift”. Ohh, by the way, March 30th 1919 was our beloved mother’s birthday.

The nicest gift, My mother made me,

Had a hidden start.

For she began, With silver strands,

From wrappings ’round her heart.

With those glistening silver strands,

She then proceeded to weave,

In precious deeds of love,

A golden quilt I did receive.

Elliott’s mother, Clarice, working on one of her uncountable quilts over the years.

The batting of her quilt for me,

Is cushioned with each thought,

Of her love and prayers for me,

My best she always sought.

Another quilt to keep a little one warm at night.

The pattern stitched, Upon this quilt,

Has colors in every hue.

Designs depicting, The godly life,

Of my mother so faithful and true!!
