While I was on the phone this morning Molly was at her craft table sewing away. Every now and then she would come over and sit a piece of fabric on my chest and then walk away. I didn't ask any questions. Why you ask? I have learned to leave her alone. When she is being creative and has all these ideas, if I come along and tell her the "right way" to do something, all of a sudden she can only think within that box. The box that I put her in. So instead I have learned to leave her alone and let her create, knowing that I am nearby to answer any questions. I am so glad that I left her alone this morning, because I would have ruined this! This sweet moment that was perfect just the way it was! She made something amazing that didn't quite work out for her intended purpose; but then she realized she could still use it for something else, and boy was she proud!
I will be having my surgery Friday morning. I am still hoping to post tomorrow but I wanted you to know just in case. xoxox Samantha
PS. Molly let me do this video just for the blog (can you tell she was a little shy), so I told her the comments would be just for her and we will read them together tonight. Oh ... and you are welcome to laugh at my country girl accent! I know you love it!
Edited to add: To answer a few questions, Molly is 6 years old and she made the pattern herself! Boy is she struttin with all these comments coming in!
