    My quilt came!!! I say my quilt, cus it's mine now :) :) :) Henry made his Hope Among the Darkness quilt for me, because i have Huntington's Disease. Nobody knows how much darkness i have had at times, and when things are dark, it feels like there is no hope. On Sept 7, a few weeks ago, i woke up in the morning from a very very vivid dream. I dreamed that i was in church, and i was thinking how beautiful the cross is, and i was told no, it's not in the beauty of the cross that you find peace, it is in the brokeness of the cross, in our weaknesses, that we find hope. I woke up from this dream crying it was so real, because i feel so imperfect having hd now, and i cried seeing the true beauty and comfort is in imperfection. I thought about that dream all day, and that night i went to the forum, and Henry posted that he had just finished his Hope Among the Darkness quilt, and the first thing i saw, was i saw the photo of the quilt, and the crosses jumped out at me. I immediately remembered my dream, and began to cry, but you know what else i noticed? I noticed that the quilt is so black but that i've never seen blackness looking so beautiful, and to me darkness is scary, but the beautiful flowrs just fill up the darkness with such beauty. I'm sorry to go on, but this just is really special to me, and i can't believe that someone would just do this for me. I don't think Henry knew just how much this would mean to me. Thank you so very much Henry, i truly love this, and will cuddle it so much, it is so beautiful :) :) :)
