Surrounded By Love

As the news about Miss Judi weighs heavy on our minds, we are evermore thankful to be part of this community, even when it breaks our hearts.

Here in my little corner of the world, I am surrounded by love, even when I am alone.

The pillow says “Around here the Miniature Schnauzer is in charge,” and it’s from my brothers from another mother, JD & Max.

The quilt you see on the back of the couch was made by my monnie (my mom person’s mom).  It was made from all the materials that used to cover tables at my people’s wedding. 

The red bit on top of the blue afghan is a placemat with my face on it made by Miss Agnes.

The blue afghan was made by my mom person’s grandmother for her in 1982.  She was an amazing woman & knit the afghan without a pattern.

The quilt at the bottom of the pile is another on made by my monnie.  It’s made from scraps, including scraps from clothing that her mother wore before she passed last year.  That was my mom person’s other grandmother.

So you see even when my mom person & I are here alone, we are surrounded by love.

 We pray that Miss Judi is always surrounded by love too.
