Joy and Sorrow
I am finally home after 2 1/2 very difficult weeks. Life is filled with ups and downs and during the last 2 weeks I experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. First, it is with great excitement that our family welcomed Christopher David on Feb 22. A first grandchild on both sides and a first child for my son and daughter-in-law. He is perfect and adorable and we are just delighted. This morning I finished putting together this quilt for him and hopefully it will be finished later this week.
Sadly, I was unable to immediately share in the excitement of his birth as I was in the hospital in Canada with my father as he spent his final days battling lung cancer. He was funny, thoughtful and strong 'til the end and I will miss him dearly, but, I feel so blessed to have had that last week with him sharing laughter and love.
Time to get back to Happy Stitching.
