The beginning of the "blanket toss" wall hanging I am making for my mom----haven't done the border or any of the quilting yet - excited to see my progress on this one.

Hey-

Thanks for coming by my blog and following me. Good luck in the giveaway. The wall hanging looks so fun. Can't wait to see it finished.

I know you do not know me...I saw your comment on "Thus Far" blog. I am a friend of Michelle's. I just wanted to encourage you as you go and visit your Dad this coming month. I was in the same situation as you many years ago with my Dad, except that I was only 2 hours away. I remember those times visiting with him after his diagnosis. I tried to share every last bit of my heart with him...we laughed and cried and it was probably some of the most rewarding times of my life. I pray that your visit is full of moments like these. I would encourage you to be honest with yourself and your Dad and then just try as hard as you can to be completly natural and enjoy the time you have. I remember he was so sick and I made him lay down on the couch and I snuggled right up against him like I used to when I was a little girl....I know it was special to both of us because stroked my hair the way he used to. The Drs. gave my Dad 6 months...he lived 9 and then went home to be with Jesus where now he has met every child I have ever lost and waits to be rejoined with his family. I just wanted you to know that I will be praying for you. The Lord is faithful to give us exactly what we need to handle every situation under the sun.
