gift


Things have been kind of sad around here. The Friday after I came back from Maryland my sister-in-law,my brother's wife, passed away. She had been battling ovarian cancer for 2 and a half years. She was only 33. My brother and I have always been close. It is only he and I and he is four years younger. It has been heart breaking to watch them go through this and not be able to do a thing.

My friends at fibertradition yahoo group have been with me from the first diagnoses. Giving support, love, and prayers. They are an amazing bunch of ladies.

One of my fellow fters felt I needed an extra hug and sent me a shawl. It is so beautiful. I am so in love with these colors. They remind me of a cool forest. Thank you Laura! You have a big heart. This came at a great time!
