i think a lot about safety these days. not only on THIS day of all days. i am raising a toddler, there is not a moment safety is far from my thoughts. BUT today it is overwhelming. i made the tiniest of quilts, a little over two inches long, too tiny even for a smurf. it is impossible to keep my family safe all the time. it is a creepy shadow of uncertainty that follows me around. my active daughter, my traveling husband, myself being barely coordinated. safety is a dream, this day it is a far off and away dreamy memory.
