The Swimsuit

I have been going to an aqua aerobics class at the YMCA pretty regularly for a while now. I also have been going through swimsuits way too fast. A couple months ago I had to buy another new one and I decided to splurge on a Speedo, hoping it would have a long life. The other day, I realized too late that I had a split in one of my fingernails, which got caught and snagged the lining of the suit. I tried to tie it off, but pulled too tight resulting in a small hole. I was devastated. Yesterday I talked to my mom about the problem and told her I was going to try to sew it up. My mom used to sew everything – including swimsuits – and recently got her old sewing machine back up and running. She said she would take care of it for me. I helped by threading the needle and tying off the loose ends. Other than that, she did sew it quite nicely. She said it felt really good to sit down and use the machine again. I wore the swimsuit today and it held up great. Another job well done by my mom.

I Found God today in my mom’s handiwork.
