Sue, I was honored to have had a small part in the making of the quilts and no thanks are necessary. Just know that we all appreciate your contribution to The Quilt Show, and hope Jack continues on the road to recovery and that you get some much needed rest.
Sue, please know we can only help you from afar and didn't make the quilts for the thanks--only as a tangible reminder of the love, care and prayers we all send your way. Just do what you have to do right now to take care of yourself and your beloved.
This is part of an e-mail note I got from Sue this morning, and I thought it was appropriate to post it here. As usual, you are welcome to leave notes here for Sue to read when she has time.
I really want to let everyone know how much I appreciate the quilts – they are beautiful and the notes are wonderful. I want to send some special thanks (hand-written notes) to some of the folks who helped organize all this – can you help me identify those people? That would be wonderful. In the meantime, wherever it is appropriate on the TQS website, please let folks know that it is not for lack of gratitude that I have not thanked everyone – I am still blown away by their kindnesses and concerns and prayers and support. As you know, being a caregiver is more than a 24-hour job and Jack is just taking an enormous amount of time and energy right now – being at home is great, but it put a huge workload on me that consumes every waking second. Let them know that the thank you is coming – and their efforts are so very much appreciated.
More later – gotta take care of my guy right now.
