A Most Thoughtful Gift

This gift came to me a few months ago, but I just haven't posted it.  It is hard to post....because really, how can I even begin to tell you what this gift meant.

A lady friend that I know from my kid's highschool, Cindy, is a master quilter.  I haven't really seen her in 12 years, but we do connect on Facebook.  She surprised me with this most awesome, precious quilt.

I tried to thank her, but the words sounded flat to me....but they were heartfelt.

I will just let you enjoy the pictures, as best I could do....










The fabrics are stunning, the work is amazing.  I cry everytime I read it.  I do have the book What Cancer Cannot Do....but to have a quilt!

Thank you Cindy again.  I treasure this gift, but even more, the thought that you would do so much for me.

What a sweetheart Cindy is. I can only imagine how deeply this touched your heart and how much you love it. I love that you can wrap yourself up in it and read a good book and be reminded of how much God loves you and how much He is using your life to lift others up. An amazing gift for an amazing gal!

Oh Ceekay, What an incredible gift of love your friend gave you. I love the sayings(as you know fighting Ovarian cancer is an important cause to me)and you epitomize courage and strength.
May it remind you, every time you get weary, of all the blessings you have.
