Life Challenges and Friends Who Help You Through Them

I am very fortunate that through the years of blogging I have made many good internet friends.  It is why I continue to post this blog though lately I have been MIA.   I know many of us have never physically met and have to satisfy ourselves with email and blogs and Instagram posts but you are all the kindest, most generous souls and I feel I really do "know" many of you.

I am especially grateful for these connections recently for I have embarked on a journey dealing with some health issues though, thankfully, I have been given a very good prognosis. Many with cards, pretty fabric gifts and such caring emails, a most wonderful pillow, a stunning quilt...have shown me that faith, friends and family are really important to a positive and healing path.  The Lord has me in His hands and shows me His love through the loving care of these important people to me.

A couple of these beautiful little sunshine and joy packages:
A healing Angel from my friend Shelly...

The most beautiful package of Dutch Petra Prins fabrics from my friend Doreen...

This lovely and oh-so perfect pillow which pretty much encapsulates many of my quilting loves from my friend Patty...
Here it is on my couch Patty :)

A beautiful pre-filled sewing bag and caddy from my husband's aunt, an aunt of my heart if not by blood, Sharon...

A gift from my Aunt Jan which is a progressive one enticing me with all the pretty wrappings...

And this stunning quilt from my friend Colette that came wrapped in such love I just sat in a puddle for a bit after receiving it.
 So many people have touched my life the last month and a half, many from church with gifts of food (thank you Cheryl and Shari and Debbie) and flowers and prayer and counsel as well as those in my family and friends with their support in so many ways.

Thanks to all for your well-wishes and prayers and support.  I love you all.

I knew you were getting a quilt, but I had no idea how beautiful it was. Colette did an amazing job of wrapping you in love! I love the kindness of the quilting world and I'm so glad you've been feeling their love. xo
