She told me while her mother was so ill that reading my blogs each day cheered her up. I met Sonja a number of years ago as we both took lacemaking lessons. We hit it off very quickly and I also discovered we share not only a love for lacemaking but also for stitching. We enjoy getting together for an afternoon, drinking tea and working on lace or stitching. Knowing that my blog was able to help her see some joy in difficult times really touches my heart! I hope sincerely that we will continue to share our hobbies and friendship for many years to come dear Sonja!

Thoughts of a good friend.....
Today has been an emotional day listening to a good friend of mine talk at her mother's funeral. I wanted to let her know through reading this how I cherish our friendship. Yesterday was her birthday and today her mother's funeral. Her mother lost her fight with cancer. There were all red roses at the services and I felt this painting of Thomas Kinkade's "A Perfect Red Rose" could give me that chance to say to her how sorry I am for her loss. Your mother will always be with you in your heart. Look for her there!
