    I thought you would all want to know how very loving, kind and so special I feel quilters are. I quilt with a group of women on Wednesdays. There are about 20 of us, mainly older women (I'm next to the youngest). My family has been very sick for the past 2 weeks and it may extend for my DH and myself for another 4 weeks (due to lung complications).

    Several of them got together and one came by my house just now with homemade chili, TP, paper towels, laundry soap, homemade cookies, canned goods, juice, a Halloween gift for our 8 year old son and $200 in cash to help with bills. I'm in tears as I type, Unbelievable that there are such good people in this world!!!

    I thought I'd share my special moment :D :D

    I'm guessing they're just giving back some of what you've given them. For them to do all of that, you must be pretty special yourself!! :D :D
    I hope you all get well soon!!!

    It's all in the Kharma. The old saying "you reap what you sew" indicates that you are well deserving. Hope your situation improves very soon.

    Hugs from CA.
