When I first decided to start this blog, it was just to share the quilty things I make. I soon realized that this blog was so much more than that. It was also an introduction into the wonderful world of quilty bloggers. I now have quilty blog friends who understand my passion and addiction for quilting, but they also are so much more than quilting friends. Take Lara of BuzzinBumble for example. Lara went above and beyond being just a quilty friend, she is a compassionate caring person.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said 'Into each life some rain must fall' It seems like it has been a downpour here since Saturday, my DIL was rushed by ambulance for emergency surgery, she was 7 weeks pregnant. She lost the baby, I had surgery on Tuesday followed by a bad reaction to the tape on the dressing. In Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem he also says 'Behind the clouds is the sun still shining'. I know that is true and I'll just have to wait for the sun to shine, it may take awhile but it will shine brightly.
People like Lara are helping in their own special way to get the sun shining and it seems a little brighter thanks to her. You see I received a package in the mail from her filled to the brim with well wishes and gifts.
A lovely bag that I know was sewn with prayers and well wishes in every stitch. The caramels will be enjoyed and gone in no time. The sudoku will definitely help to occupy my mind. Thank you seems so inadequate, but also so heart felt. Thank you Lara for being there and for being such a good quilty friend.
