From Gerrie, A Quilt For Healing
Gerrie has been kind enough to loan me her quiltlet for inspiration and healing. It was made for her when she was facing the challenge of breast cancer last year. When I unwrapped it, I just sat down and cried for a minute, overwhelmed by the love and strength of its message. I'm not sure I have the words to say how much this means to me. Thank you Gerrie from the bottom of my heart.
Wow, it has been a busy week. Still more medical stuff and endless paperwork to prepare for absence from work. I rather naively thought a few days back that it was going to be simple. Everything is fine, there's just a lot more bureaucratic nonsense than I expected. I had to run around town, file this, file that. I'm off to work shortly, my last working day for six weeks.
My neice and her family are in town for two weeks and there will be a big family gathering this weekend. It will be great to be with everyone and fun to see the youngest family members. I can't think of a better way to spend my last day before surgery, which will be Monday, 1pm Pacific time. Thanks for all your prayers and positive energy for healing.
