Thank You, God!

Today I was able to use my sewing skills to make quilt blocks for the 'First Saturday' Block-of-the-Month program at Greenbaum's.  The fun part is seeing the completed block before any of the 'club' participants! I also get to help plan the colors and fabrics which will be used in the blocks each month.

So- photos of the block? Nope! It's a secret for now! I can share a photo of my close compadré and 'secret-keeper, Maggie...

She tucked herself into my scrap-box to take a little nap while I was away helping finish kit-folding at the store.

It's gonna be a fun 'B.O.M' quilt for people to make, and today- I'm thankful to be ALIVE!

Much joy can come from simple things:
A warm kitty, and a well-pieced quilt block!

Bye for now!

What A Long Strange Trip It's Been...

Late at night
Need to Sleep
Miss my blog
Need to Write.

Chemo Brain
Makes me Forget 
Where I leave Things;
I Regret

Not knowing;
Don't Care
I forget
My Underwear!

Miles to go
And now, no job
Why am I here
I fear and Wob-

Ble in my heart-- the
Bills overwhelm and
Nothing I can do--
I cry overcome

And give this mess to You.

You came through in Cancer,
And were there during Chemo.
You took my burns in Radiation.
And you're restoring me inside.

I fall and I'm weak, and fear ill never be strong. This path up this mountain to health is so hard to climb. I know you go with me;

I know you've been there,
You've cried every tear with me-
You've named each new hair!

Thank you for hearing the pain in my soul.
It was really tough today, God...
But with You, I'm Made Whole!
