I've been side tracked.
After a lovely Thanksgiving,
I was happily sewing Christmasy projects
in my cozy little home
surrounded by my perfectly happy little family
feeling rather on top of all things creative and holiday.
Then I got word about a friend.
A friend who is suddenly having crazy health problems.
He is an amazing, artistic, godly young man
with dreams, vision and passion.
He has been side tracked.
He weighs heavy on my heart.
My projects seem frivolous
when someone is struggling so.
I remember being sick so many times
for long spells
and losing babies.
It always seemed weird to me that the world kept going when my world stopped.
Everyone kept working,
going to church,
I was never mad at that.
I just thought it was weird how somebody could be so knocked off their feet
and the world not stop just a little.
Well, all that to say, my world stopped a little.
And I made a quilt.
