    Default Missing all of you

    Hello all,

    I have been gone so long some of you won't even know me LOL. I have truly been missing all of you, the forum, quilting...everything. This has not been easy time theuilting gives me last 10 months. My precious Daddy died the day after Thanksgiving after years of illness ( COPD). I got through the holidays, then on January 14th my husband had his 3rd heart and had to have quadruple by-pass. He did well for awhile, then last month they did some tests and after a heart cath found 1 by-pass had failed and had a clot in it. the clot was removed and a stent put in. He is again doing well. We have dealt with his heart disease for 19 years, this isn't my first rodeo. Add to all of this my youngest daughter lost a baby, at 5 months pregnant. Honestly, I'm just .....not sure what I am. I suppose waiting for the other foot to drop. I know we are not promised anything but right now, I know this. But I find myself constantly aware of the fact that I could lose my husband at anytime. I try not to think that way, we have always simply lived our lives, trying to treat every moment as precious.

    Now please, I'm not looking for sympathy. I suppose I'm reaching out because I know others are dealing with things like this and so much more. Quilting has always been my refuge. Always when I quilt, I forget all my worries, my pain, and simply rejoice in the joy quilting gives me. I can't even find comfort there right now. I am so sad I can't make the forum again this year. Every year I plan to go, but life, money problems, my health, something seems to stop me. So please all of you going have some fun with me in mind, I'm hoping to join you next year.

    All my Love,
    Liz

    Life sometimes sucks (as I well know) and a little sympathy can be theraputic, so of course I share some with you.

    Sending hugs, prayers, comforting thoughts and a whole lot of empathy. Wish I had the power to teletransport you to Hamilton the end of the month.
