You can see why I don't want to go to a grief group, can't you? To be in a whole group of people feeling this? No way; not at this point! Though I cherish the love, friendship, mutual understanding and support that I share with each of the moms I know who have been through this, I don't know if I could take a whole crowd of us in the same place, at the same time. Maybe some day, but not today.
In the midst of this hard time, I got an email from Childlife, requesting more quilts for the hospital, so I've been working on them. Making these blankets always helps; thanks for supporting this ministry, Mom & Dad!
And since our neighbors are opening a new bistro this week:
19006 Front Street, Suite 100
I decided to make a "Congratulations/Best Wishes" card for them, in the form of a large collage. I used photos of Italy and France, and some great shots from old issues of Gourmet magazine. I had put them in boxes to give away or recycle, but hey!--you never know when those things may come in handy! "Creative Every Day" continues to inspire, even in the dark days. This is a photo of the finished piece. I am going to wrap it up with a ribbon and give it to them.
May your day be blessed.
