One couple were people I knew from 20 years ago-they are 95 now. They had looked forward to this day for weeks. They sat in the front row and smiled throughout. JOY!
Another couple were particuarly special to have in the group. A lovely woman(in her 50's), who had been an artist, is in the final stages of MS. What loving care she receives from her husband. And what a joy to bring joy into her life! I reminded them about the story rope workshop next week. I said, "you have a story to tell" and she said, "yes I do". I think they will come.
Throughout I talked about my spiritual journey, which is so connected to the quilts & their stories. Many came up to say how much they were so encouraged & uplifted. I smiled and said that was why I came. It brought me great joy to bring them joy. I really needed that.
