Today I worked on a quilt made by a mom for her daughter. It was filled with words of encouragement and images of things that were important to them.
As I worked I was thinking about a young friend of mine who recently had to say goodbye to her beloved grandmother. Her death was a shock that has left a gaping whole in her life.
And I began to wonder...if our lives aren't an awful lot like a quilt. Pieced and patched together.....and best viewed from an oblique angle.
