Quilt With Us

This week I had the sad occaision to stand by one of my best friends as she buried her son, all the while thinking that there but for the Grace of God. Having been breaths away from losing my own son at Christmas time, my heart breaks for her. I hope that in the coming months when times get tough that I can be of some support to her. Please keep her in your prayers for the good Lord to give her the strength she will need to get to a place where she will be able to cope with this pain. 

On a brighter note I actually finished a quilt WOOHOO! Happy dance. I purchased one of Connecting Threads quilt kits a couple of years ago for my granddaughter Ava. Finally almost 2.5 years later,2 weddings another grandchild, a torn shoulder joint etc., etc., it is done. will post pictures shortly. 

This quilt will take her through to college now, I hope. I am also almost finished knitting a sweater, since it has been awhile since I knit anything I was using yarn that has been kicking around for awhile so it will be touch and go if there is enough to finish the second sleeve, fingers crossed. if not I will just rip it back and do 3/4 length sleeves. 

Well have had Ava and her puppy "Lucy" all weekend, Mom should be here soon to pick her up.

Till next time, remember

God Loves Ya and so do I.

I can't think of anything more painful then to lose a child, regardless of how old they are.  My prayers are with your friend.  I'm glad she has you to support her.  Looking forward to seeing your quilt.

We also lost a son 11 years ago.  The pain never goes away but by the grace of our dear Lord, you learn to cope with the loss.  At first we focused on his illness, battle with cancer, and death. As time passed we changed our focus to all the happy times we had with him.  We were always open to talk about him with anyone who would listen; we needed to keep his memory alive.  Thoughts of him occur everyday but thankfully the tears fall infrequently.  We know our son would rather have us laugh as we remember him rather than cry the rest of our lives.  He loved to laugh and was remembered by many as the boy/man with the big smile.  Just be there for your friend to share the laughter and the tears.  We all will see our lost loved ones again at Jesus feet.

Your friend is going to really need you to get through this.  I am so glad for her that you are so committed to helping her.

Congratulations on the quilt, don't forget to post pictures.

I completely relate to your friend's sorrow.  My son died 15 years ago, and the pain is still there.  Be rest assured you and your friend are in my prayers.

It is always so sad when a parent has to bury one of their children.  My youngest brother passed away in a fire 10 yrs ago and my mother almost had a nervous breakdown over it.  She was never the same after that.
