A few people have asked about the quilt in my avatar. I thought I'd posted it but can't find a post in My Topics, so I guess I just meant to. So here are a few pictures.
I made the quilt last summer while helping my dad care for my terminally ill mom. She had Alzheimers and cancer and it was very difficult time. Naturally depression set in and I needed a way to escape. I came up with this idea for a quilt and set to work. This what I dreamed up.
Some good came from the most difficult time of my life: I learned a few lessons, came to appreciate life, discovered that I can handle more than I ever thought, and gave my mom the love she deserved at a time when she needed me most.
Our old priest used to say this all the time. I'd get tired of the mantra every Sunday, now I'll quote him. Father would be so proud. :-)
"God knows what He is about."
