    Survivor Sister

    Today is my sister's birthday and to celebrate her special day and her ten years as a breast cancer survivor, I made this quilt for her. She loved it. I love her and am so thankful she is well!

    Great quilt and great sister! She is lucky to have a sister like you. I had breast cancer 16 years ago and my sister never even came to see me even though she lives just 3 hours away.

    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
