Earth Angels...

The most unbelievable thing came in the mail today from Beth  (Smazoochie) in Houston.
Unbelievable..
A quilt made with love and inspiration, called
 "The Unbroken Muldoon Family Chain"
Enough happiness for me to take 2 selfies!!! (My first two ever:) lol...
When the days are fraught with grief and sadness, I will hold this close.
Tomorrow will be the first time for my therapy quilt for I am going to Patsy's funeral.
I will hold it on my lap for courage. I hate being reminded of ALS,
I hate of driving so far..I might get lost.
I hate the sadness of funerals...but for Patsy...I will go.
Patsy died Saturday after 6 years of paralysis and suffering with ALS.
She rose above it all and was brave and strong and true.
We were all braver because of Patsy.
If our Muldoon comfort quilt was not enough..Beth added two great books.
I cannot wait to cuddle down and check them out.
Comfort is surely in quilting books!!
And then I saw this on the ALS support group website..
People are just so brave.
"This Old Guy"

ps ps ps  Mud Mud brain Me.....Than u Cecy....your phone call had me read the obit again ...
patsy' funeral is NEXT week instead
Praise the Lord...

It's just a quilt & a couple of books, but I hope they help you weather the waves of grief.
Stay safe on your trip to another funeral. I hope reaching out to your grieving friends will help you with yours.
Sending hugs.

An Irish Chain quilt! Always one of my favorite patterns. How appropriate. And this one is particularly beautiful. You are rich with friends, Mrs O'Quilts.

Hi, Diane. I haven't stopped by in a long time, but I'm trying to get back to blogging. I read over your past posts since April and I cried for you and your loved ones, and for the sadness, and for my similar predicament and the rocky road ahead. Sending you my most sincere condolences for your losses. You are indeed courageous as you stitch the pieces of your life back together, an example for all of us.

best, nadia
