A beautiful gift!

I was given a beautiful gift today by a special Lady and Friend,  Sandi!   Now as I write this I want Sandi to know that I  always thought of her as a special and sweet woman and friend.    I went to our modern quilt group today.  I wasn't feeling wonderful but wanted to be around familiar faces and friends.  Lately I seem to be able to start allot but not finish anything, I don't know if it is the nature of the beast that is inside me right now or what?  I was told by another friend not to worry she felt the same way.  Anyway Sandi, Linda and I get together once a month  to share our valuable time and laughter and it is truly a wonderful time by all.  Sandi is a very involved member of our modern quilt guild and it was nice to see her and many other members today.  Well she was showing this beautiful quilt made with blocks that I saw hanging in her studio awhile back and  made a comment back then on how much I loved the blocks.  Then she bought it closer to me and tossed it to me saying well this is for you....stunned would be a good word to put in here now cause that is how I felt.  Let me explain....  When I was first diagnosed oh my gosh the tears flowed like a creek all day and night then I got up the next day and said ok the only way to do this is head on and no pity or tears.  I told myself to get my big girl pants on and fight and basically that is what I have done.  I feel if I shed tears I will become weak and that will not work with the work that I had in front of me, fighting something I knew nothing about.  So I do my best whether they be sad, fearful, happy or worried tears, I do my best not to shed them.  But Sandi did make me push myself today when she gave me this beautiful quilt.  I got a little teary but it took all I had but believe me they were tears of joy.  It is one of the most precious gifts that  I have been given by a friend.  Sandi I will treasure it always and "thank you " just does not seem to be enough.  Having you as a friend has truly been a blessing and a gift.
This is the gift that I was given today, it is beautiful in more ways than she will ever know.....

Note:  For some reason the lighting on my camera was not wonderful and I will try tomorrow to get a better pic outside of the front and back but I did not want to wait to post a pic of it....
