Today is a great day. Actually yesterday was too. It started out with our getting thank you notes from two of the kids we have given quilts. The first note was actually from Eli's mom thanking us. Eli got a quilt with his favorite colors--blue, yellow, and green. He likes it so much he sleeps with it every night! The second note was from Justin who is 3 years old. He said he was scared but he just pretended the hospital was his "hotel". He calls his quilt his "sick blankie" and he said it made him feel better. He also sent a picture he had colored and a photograph of him with his quilt. Talk about positive reinforcement! After opening those, I went back to my sewing room and just sewed faster!
Another reason today is a great day is the number of quilts we have now donated to Lawrence Memorial Hospital is 40. We have lots more in progress and many more that will be needed but I think 40 is outstanding. That is a lot of quilts and I could not do this without the wonderful group of women who are involved. There are lots of ways to be involved--some small, some large, but they all make such a difference.
