    Thank you for the COC Quilt

    Thank you ladies for the COC quilt especially SANDY NAVAS who made the quilt and HELEN CUTLER who quilted it. It is beautiful. Your timing was perfect, as it was waiting on the front porch when we arrived home from a doctor's appointment where all the side effects of chemo were explained so we were feeling a little shell shocked. What a wonderful surprise. As you know my DH had asked me not to tell anyone (friends, family, etc) about his diagnosis--so I had a bit of "confessing" to do. Once I explained it and he unfolded the quilt he had tears in his eyes, we both did, we were so overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness. To both of us it represents the true kindness of strangers and hope that a cancer diagnosis isn't necessarily a death sentence. So thank you from both of us. We were very touched.

    On a lighter note, he doesn't begin his chemo till a week from Monday. Next Saturday there's a big family wedding here, and one of our DD who lives in another state is coming in for it and will be staying with us for four whole days and bringing our two GK, ages 1 and 4. The 4 year old is going to be the flower girl. So that will be something fun to look forward to and to take our minds off of things. Also, the groom's stepfather is from Ireland and ten of his family members are coming over for the wedding, most of them this will be their first trip to the U.S.

    So thank you again for the wonderful beautiful quilt. And thanks to everyone in general for letting me vent about this and share my worries. You are more help than you will ever know!

      BTW Helen deserves the credit for this one, along with Donna W., her cousin, who is a forum member and a COC group member.

        What a blessing to receive such a special gift. They truly are made with love. Karen made me one before my cancer surgery, and it gave me great comfort. It is also such a joy to make one, even when you don't know who the recipient is. God bless you and your DH. I know Sandy sewed many prayers in to it.

            Jocelyn, this brought tears to my eyes also. You always keep these kind of moments in your heart. I hope you and your DH enjoy your family time and the wedding. It sounds like a fun weekend.

              What a wonderful random act of kindness. Our forum members are the most generous caring loving people I have ever encountered.
              Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

                Sandy you deserve some credit, too!

                Helen has really felt honored to make COC's. - Helen is my cousin and one of the best persons you could ever ask to meet. She is a two time cancer survivor herself. Her first time was about 18 yrs ago and the second round was four years ago now, but she has now been given the "all clear". She and I are both praying for a full recovery. Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding and can relax and enjoy your family - especially the grandbabies.

                    We love ya and know how much a COC means. DD#2 went thru chemo last year and just got a 6 month "all clear". She still cherishes the Quilt she received.. knowing all those prayers stitched into it has gotten her thru some very tough times.

                    We added you to our prayers for a full recovery...
