I came home with from Pennsylvania with this and never showed you...Shame on me.
Ahh yes, wool felt, a big brand new giant stack and typically, I would have ripped into this stack and started stitching away, but I have been looking at it now for 7 days. Amongst the greens, reds and golds, the colors I normally migrate to, the colors I call my "Life Colors"...
I see Blue...and I feel blue.
My heart is still so full of emotion from the weekend,so much that it makes me a little weepy, no, really weepy. I am going to show you a picture that will tug on your heartstrings, maybe harder than ever. This is Erik Rees. Pastor at my church, daddy to Jessie. A photo that was taken a few month ago:
After witnessing our small community rally around Jessie through the 10 months of her fight, the love and tears shown during the days and weeks after her death, the immense desire to keep her hope of Spreading Joy to children fighting cancer and events like this past Saturday, I feel more empowered than ever before to help...as do my boys...In fact, when Ben got out of the car this morning, he mentioned he was wearing NEGU Blue (not knowing that I was typing this)
Our family is fighting, working, walking, praying and helping to Spread Joy in memory of Jessie, for the cause, for the families
We all have a God Given purpose and it is our responsibility to
so again, I challenge you to Do Something. Whether it is for the Jessie Rees Foundation or something else, please get up and do something...because as Jessie's daddy reminded me, "We Are Better Together"
and hey... show your Team NEGU pride wearing shirts like these to spread the word...
