I've been wanting to put this up for a long time now, ever since I was discharged from the hospital during my last visit. I've been trying to get a picture up with no luck; hence, the delay. So, I gave up on the picture. I'm just sorry you all won't be able to see it. I got a new computer (my family got together and pitched in to get me a new laptop for my 40th!), but I haven't figured out how to put pictures on it yet. I can get pictures from the Internet, just not my personal pictures. sigh
Anyway, all that to say, when I got out of the hospital last week, I came home to a LOVELY afghan made by several of my writing friends. Each square was made by an individual (from different States!), and then pieced together by one person. I'd name everyone who was involved in making this afghan, but some of the cards fell off (they each left a card with their name on the square they made; I didn't want to take them off because I enjoyed seeing the names of the people who did this for me), and I'm afraid I might forget someone. All I know is, I was deeply touched and really, words are so lame when expressing one's appreciation for such a beautiful, thoughtful, generous gift!
Just think of all the time each of those ladies put into making each square, and then the time it took to piece them all together . . . all for me! It really makes a person feel loved. And after this last stay in the hospital, I was fighting depression and asking God to just let me know that He was there for me. Well, it's amazing how God reveals Himself and His love through these giving individuals.
Thank you, ladies! Thank you for the blessing you are to me. xxx
I go into the hospital today for a week, so I probably won't be able to post or comment. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. We'll see!
More chemo, here I come.
HERE'S A PICTURE OF THE AFGHAN! I'm in the hospital, and normally I can't access my blog or leave comments, but for some reason, it's letting me right now. Yeah! See the lovely afghan below. Thank you, Rachel! xxx All those little cards on it have the names of each individual person who made that square! :-)
