the much-requested quilt portrait

It seems like life is never really smooth, or even all that peaceful. Between us we have ten kids, four grandkids, and several jobs.
There are certain aspects of our lives that are especially stressful, things that I have not mentioned thus far, and probably won't. Hardly a day goes by without some kind of extreme stuff going on in the corners of our world.
And we have a great many financial obligations (definitely related to the first two paragraphs) and so we are often left to do without.
Mark gets up well before the sun rises to take care of business, and is exhausted after working a long, long day, usually until 10 or 11 each night, Monday-Saturday.
I juggle many things, too, work-wise and otherwise.
But the thing is that here, in the center of our little apartment, there is peace. In the center of this relationship, there is peace.
And that makes all the difference!
