A Holiday Thank You

Dear Glitterati – Happy Holidays to all of you! I hope you have been able to spend some special time with the people that matter most in your life. I spent my Christmas with Mr. Sparkles, our two kids, and his immediate family. It was a lovely day filled with too much food, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it. I also feel blessed to have all of YOU in my life. Your constant devotion, support, messages, pictures, volunteerism, #truthtea, and creative dynamism make keeping this blog all worth it! I recently discovered a song by Ellie Goulding (new album Delirium) called, “Army” that has the same sentiment that I feel about you. I am sharing the lyrics below, but I hope you do check it out on iTunes as it really is beautifully sung. Anyway, I’m going away this week to a secluded island beach which is off the grid! Woohoo! Don’t expect to see too much from me until the new year. Oh and pray that I don’t come back with any crazy tan lines! Until then, lots of Sparkles – Molli!

I know that I’ve been messed up
You never let me give up
All the nights and the fights
And the blood and the breakups
You always had to call off
I am pain, I’m a child, I’m afraid
And yet you understand
Yeah like no one can
Know that we don’t look like much
But no one fucks it up like us

16 and you never even judged me
Matter of fact I always thought you were too cool for me
Sitting there in the caravan
All the nights we’ve been drunk on the floor
And yet you understand
Yeah like no one can
We both know what they say about us
But they don’t stand a chance because

When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
I’m standing with an army
When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
Standing with an army

Dark times, you could always find the bright side
I’m amazed by the things that you would sacrifice
Just to be there for me
How you cringe when you sing out of tune
And yet it’s everything
So don’t change a thing
We both know what they say about us
But they don’t stand a chance because

When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
I’m standing with an army
When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
Standing with an army

Yet you understand
Yeah like no one can
We both know what they say about us

When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
I’m standing with an army
When I’m with you
When I’m with you
I’m standing with an army
They don’t have a chance either

    Merry Christmas to you and all the Sparkles family. Thank you for the honesty you bring to this quilting world. You’re never afraid to tell it like it is, or buck the trends and try something different. Quilting needs someone like that. Enjoy your holiday.
