If you ever have the opportunity to just do something nice for someone out of the blue, just do it. Whether it may be taking a meal to someone, bringing a small gift, whatever it may be, you never know how you may impact that person. I guess this is the whole concept behind the “pay it forward” movement, right?
So why am I randomly rambling about doing nice for others? We were so blessed and honored to be presented a beautifully hand made prayer quilt today. This was such an amazing gesture for the following reasons:
1 – It’s not even our church that did this for us! The pastor at this church is a long time (30 year) friend of the family who was our Chaplain when my family was stationed in Texas. Over the years, his family has wound up stationed in nearly the same places as us, and our families have remained good friends. Throughout our awful pregnancy, his church has prayed for us, lifted us up, sent cards, and looked out for us. Pastor J baptized Kathryn in the hospital the day she passed, and later baptized Tiny in his church.
2 – When Tiny was baptized, some of the ladies in the church realized they should make us a prayer quilt, like they do for members in the church. So they got to work putting together this beautiful quilt for Tiny, in memory of her sister Kathryn.
