Cathy's Quilt

Monday, February 03, 2014

Sometimes the life we plan gets side-tracked by the life we are sent. It has been several days since I wrote a blog, although I did plan to write one every day which is a goal on one of my teams.
I am trying to finish a quilt for a sweet niece who started it when she was diagnosed with cancer. She is now unable to work on it and I just couldn't stand for it not to get finished. There are no more medicines to try for her so now it is just a matter of time.
The one thing I try to remember is that 20 minutes of walking keeps my mind and body able to function so I dedicate three (20 minute) times in my day to take care of me.
Now, what made the tears flow today was to learn that I am the "Shining Star" of the day and all you wonderful people are lifting me up today in ways that you can't imagine.
Thank you all for your friendship.

    All that love going into finishing that quilt is going to mean a lot to Cathy, when it's finished and she's warped up in it, she'll be covered in love.
