My husband has a good friend at work.
Every winter they go ice fishing in the mountainous lakes of Colorado.
They sleep in a cabin overlooking Pikes Peak.
They hike to the lake and drill holes for fishing.
They sit in the sun and try to catch their limit of trout.
It is a good time for some good friends.
Jimmy who lives in Colorado and hosts the Texas fisherman
is married to Brenda.
She is battling cancer.
It has been a long battle.
It started with the dreaded breast cancer.
Treated, in remission, life goes on.
But it has been a struggle.
In the years since she was first diagnosed,
she has gotten and fought cancer many times.
Several years ago, I made her a quilt.
I made it out of flannels (thank you Kay!).
I used a pattern I had never used before.
I wanted it to be soft.
I wanted it to be a comfort to her during her treatments.
I wanted to help in some way.
Isn't that just how it is?
Someone struggles, but how can we really help them?
Pray. Call. Pray. Make a quilt.
