|Becky's H2H quilts for Covered in Love|
With the H2H quilts added to our usual block drive quilts and donation odd and ends the Cat-Free Quilt-Staging-Area was soon overflowing. Time for a hospital delivery! Usually I bring quilts along with me on days I work, so when I drop them off with the chaplains we are all "on duty" and being pulled in many directions at once. It was nice to come in on a day off and actually sit down to talk.
"...the quilt is very beautiful [...] Angels were in her room
and they caressed the quilt with compassion and love.
The Spirit of God and his Holy Angels were in her room
as the waves of love encompassed my mother like ocean waves.
As she took her last breath there was beauty and peace
and at the speed of sound Mama was wrapped up in the
arms of Jesus as he welcomed her home.
PS- Tell the quilters to keep up the good work."
They got to hear more details about who you all are and how the quilts come together and I got to hear some recent stories from their deliveries. I got a photocopy of a sweet letter from a grateful daughter which I shared in part above.
Today's delivery brought us up to 84 quilts for grieving families. Thank you to each and every person who has contributed. Your kindness has ripples you'd never expect. The Chaplains who deliver the quilts, the security guards who occasionally let me in to get a quilt for a family after hours, nurses caring for dying patients, and the local mail clerks have heard our stories and been amazed by your generosity.
