Cathy, I want to add my heartfelt thoughts and prayers for you and your family. We never know what we will face in life. One thing I've found out over the years is that the Lord always walks with us and will never leave us. And your quilting friends care about you, too--just remember, you're not alone--we're all out here ready to listen and pray for you.

I just want to join the chorus of quilting companions/friends who are praying for all of you as you face these unknown challenges. God will sustain you in, through, AND beyond it. But I also know that sometimes it's pretty darn difficult to see it right now.
Your quilt story is a beautiful picture of the acceptance process!
As so many have already said, you and your family are in our prayers. I do like your block and the sentiment behind it. Quilting can be therapudic (sp?) You aren't alone with the backwards pieces in the first block. Mine are too. Oh well, as the Amish say, only God is perfect. Hang in there.
Oh, Cathy, My heart goes out to you in this time. I know how hard it is when you feel so helpless. But you are doing good, working it out through quilting. The block is beautiful and you will all come through this. God takes a lot of hits with a cancer diagnosis but he always seems to be there when we need someone to catch us. Have faith and have fun with the BOM. I'll be watching!
I sent you a private e mail but want to add here how brave you are and how brave your family is -- the Lord works in mysterious ways and we know not the reason or the result. Your working through your anger and grief has helped me today and I know will help others. So know that a circle of friends and companions on life's journey are here to boost you up when you need it and cry with you when that is all you can do.
May the Almighty being bless and sustain you and your family in these difficult days and knowthat there is a whole army of warriors who are their to help, support and love you. Ann
