If I ever wondered about whether a quilt is a worthy gift,
I now know it to be of great value.
My cousin Emily is one of the most amazing people.
In the past few years she has undergone a heart, kidney and lungs transplant.
The only person in California to have faced multiple transplants ...
and she has done it with great courage.
but it was the most joyous occasion
when she was well enough to come visit
and enjoy a luncheon that my Mom hostessed.
Even more special that her sister could come from Nevada to join us...
When I spent time with her in the hospital,
she told me that she hoped she would be well enough
some day to spend time in her garden.
I hope she will see the pink hearts and know
that even though we don't see her often,
she is always in our heart.
I hope you will all say a prayer for Emily.
She still endures much pain, but always has a cheerful spirit.
I told her she was my hero....and that she humbles me in her goodness.
I now know that there are angels that walk among us.....she is certainly God's miracle.
A quilt is such a small thing...
.but it was stitched with both prayer and love.
