Cathy's Quilt Update

Monday, February 10, 2014

Cathy's quilt was finished in time to use as a raffle at a gathering of wonderful country people in a little place called Decker Chapel. I am proud to say, with the help of all my children and grandchildren that we raised $1,047 to give to Cathy. I am also proud to say that the winner of the quilt gave it back to be given to Cathy!
Now you can imagine my joy in being able to go spend part of my day today giving her the good news.
Cathy is my niece and has terminal cancer. The background on my page is a picture of the quilt which she was working on before she bacame too sick to finish and I decided to take it and try to finish it for her.
There is always good with the bad, we just sometimes have to look hard to find it. However when I looked out at the sea of faces of the people who were willing to help a stranger, I realized once again, in spite of what the news tells us, that our world is full of really wonderful, generous people!
May God bless all you caring people.

    A beautiful quilt and a beautiful gesture from the person who gave it back to Cathy.

    What a blessing we all received just knowing how compassionate people still are. God Bless you, Cathy and the rest of Cathy's family.

    So glad to read that the quilt became a double blessing: first raising the money and then re-gifting to your niece.
Praying your niece experiences the peace and comfort of Christ as she lives with her terminal diagnosis.

    Great that you were able to raise the money and gracious that the person gave back the quilt! I hope your niece is doing well in spite of her diagnosis and is not suffering in too much pain.
