We were out of town for a week and arrived back Sunday afternoon. Going through the mail, which my darling daughter #2 had piled on my bed, I saw a large package. I opened it last because I had a feeling it would be the best. And I was right! Inside was a beautiful lap quilt made by wonderful friends from around this world. I can't tell you how overwhelmed I am at the generosity of you all. My dear friend in CA always tells me I look at the world through rose colored glasses (somewhat sarcastically) and she is right-I do look through rose colored glasses and I see wonderful women like you all!
I can't take a picture and post it yet because I need a special size connector. But I can say that it is absolutely beautiful. All of you so generously reached out to "hug" me, and Viv-I can't believe you hand quilted the blocks! This is something I will cherish all my life. And it couldn't have arrived at a better time. My second eye surgery to remove the "debris" is scheduled in July and we will be leaving for OH on Thursday as the situation is coming to resolution-the hospice nurse feels it is better if we come in sooner rather than later.
I love all of you for the women you are, that you would reach out and wrap me in your love, and that we get to do this again! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
