Norma’s Last Gift


Honestly, maybe you’ll think I’m crazy. Maybe it’s just science? 

Let me explain.

Me (10 hours ago): I want to do a random act of kindness for someone.

Indy: Well, you could do something for me.

Me: Ug! That’s not how it works.

But I have talked about teaching her how to sew—and we shouldn’t break promises. So, I brought out fabric a dear friend wanted me to have after she died a few years ago. 

Anyway, Indy made the cutest apron with the vintage quilt squares. The whole time I thought about Norma, Nolan’s mom. We had the same birthday (Groundhog Day), and she left me fabric along with a typewriter that I wrote about in “Two More Years.” I read that chapter recently and remembered how amazing that woman was—I even thought about that as we sewed today. 

Then, when Indy modeled the apron she made—this rainbow kept appearing! 😮

Is this incredible or what?! I’m stunned. I kind of think Norma knew how much I remembered her today. Maybe this was her last gift to us?
