Wrapped in Love
One of those most wonderful things about being sick is that it tells you how much you are loved. It is amazing to me how many people extended their helping hands to provide food for us during surgery and recovery. I received flowers from coast to coast (California, Ohio, Texas, South Dakota, Florida, and Maine) and from friends here in Missouri. I received cards from around the world. I am totally grateful.
But one of the most amazing things is that two wonderful friends made me quilts. I know, what an incredible thing. Jenny made me one of her famous Zippy Strippy Quilts (her own creation) from the most incredibly soft corduroys in browns and pinks. Jenny has a incredibly funny blog you can read here: http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/
Then my high school friend Myra made me a prayer shawl. The fabrics are all related to breast cancer. Myra, Laura and I were good friends and were all in band together! Any way, Dr. Myra made me this beautiful shawl that she handpieced for me. I plan to take it with me when I have my next surgery.
I am so eternally grateful for these women who reached out to me and shared their talents with me in such a personal way. Much love to you!
