We made small nine-patch and snowball blocks. We used some of the fabric from the Elizabeth's Letter's line. I thought it would be special because it is based on a family letter, but after everyone had gone home last night, I remembered some of the words from the letter:
“Memory and farewell words from your never forgetting mother. . . . .
Farewell, my dear child. . .”
These words from little Stori's third Great Grandmother echo the feelings of any mother at the departing of a beloved child. How applicable it is, and comforting to know that Elizabeth was among those to greet Stori on the other side.
I wondered if I should post about something so sad, but it is a part of life, and if we are there to help strengthen those around us when they need it, we will all be blessed. Go hug your loved ones.
