A Patchwork Reflection

I found out today that my Grandma Sue has cancer. We are not sure how serious the cancer is as of yet, but the announcement is calling me to remember the people in my life to whom I am so grateful for the many gifts they have given me. The picture below is of a beautiful quilt that she made for the boys, which is put to good use as the setting for many playful afternoons. This quilt joins many others the kids and I have received over the years, all filled with personal details that she knew we would love.

People show their love in many different ways. For Grandma Sue, these quilts are her labor of love. The time and energy spent on these gifts far outweigh anything she could have purchased for us. The gifts that God gives to us should be spent in service of our families and Him. Please join me in praying for my Grandmother. God bless.


  1. Prayers for your Grandma.

    This might be a good time for a novena to St. Peregrine.

  2. Oh Krissy, grandma Sue? I'm so sorry to hear that, I will add you all to our prayers (not that you aren't already there)
    I love you!!

  3. I am praying for your Grandma. God bless you.

    I'll do the novena to St. Peregrine that Anne suggested.
