This week ~ HEADS – Anything starting with the letter O
Occasionally you encounter people who are optimistic and open-hearted. Often you can get caught up in what some consider an overwhelming undertaking. That is what happened when I stumbled across Shelly’s first Share A Square post. Shelly is an old-fashioned sweetheart with an oversized heart. Her task, to have people from all over the world create squares for 140 afghans to give to children with cancer at Camp Sanguinity, surely must have over taken her life on so many occasions. But she outlasted and inspired. I am very grateful to be a part of this effort with both square donations and the piecing together of one of the afghans. Those squares were with me for quite some time and there were times I wondered if I would be able to finish. After the fires I had to remove all the tags and wash each square because of the ash and smoke smell. Keeping track of which tag went on which square was a bit tricky, but love conquers all.
One year, thousands of prayers, well wishes, and oodles of love later the afghans have been delivered. Thanks to everyone who supported the effort with squares, yarn, and emotional support. I would like most especially to thank Shelly for her inspiration, guidance, support and for starting this and following through.
Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
