Copied from my blog:
The pillow featured below was made by one of my Aunt’s coworkers. When my Aunt solicited donations for the MS Walk it really touched one of her coworkers. Apparently she has Rheumatoid Arthritis (also an autoimmune disease for those who are unaware) and she was saddened at the prospect of my disability. To this point we have never met, and only talked via email after I thanked her for her very sweet gift. This was one of the sweetest things done for me ever. Factor in that it was done by a complete stranger and it is easily the nicest thing anyone has ever done! Wow!The stitching in done in primitive format and the text below reads “He leads me beside still waters” Thank you again Jill!
I’ll add that only a very few people have hand made me anything, and there were all very close relatives. I’m still taken aback that a complete stranger would go through so much effort for me. The pillow sits prominently on the dresser in our bedroom. This puts it in the most visible location in our room, and where we keep precious items. It also reminds me of the generosity of others and that by the Lord’s Grace I will make it through all of this.
