A Sad Time


I will probably be absent here for little while. My angel baby grand daughter Madeline died in a tragic, stupid accident on Sunday, so I don't feel much like stitching or blogging right now. These are canvases she drew and painted for me last year - the post was on May 8, 2007, and labeled "Needlepoint Canvas Preparation" if you want to see. When I feel better some day, I will stitch these - as the plan was for her to do them with Granny's tutelage. She was 13, and I will miss her terribly. She was part of my soul. Love and blessings to my internet and "blogging" friends who have been more supportive in many cases than my own family.

I just tuned in to catch up on your wounderful stitching to find this. My heart is heavy with sadness for you. We lost a family friend to cancer yesterday, I thought he was too young to go at 42, but this is just cruel.

My heart goes out to you and your family.

Oh I hope you get this email message as I have no other way to communicate with you!

My heart breaks for you. I've not lost a child or grandchild yet (pray God I never do) but I have lost a husband so I have some idea the pain you're going through. Would that I could make it better or help you heal any faster. Know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Judy, I just want to add my condolences, as one of your regular readers. A grandmother, too, I think I can to some extent feel the pain of your loss--the loss of your beloved granddaughter and the unbearable pain of her parents. I am so sorry.

My grandson is 13. Oh how you must be hurting - all of your family. I have no words of comfort so I'll just say a prayer for you all.
