Today I infused higher meaning into my life and it felt great! I did a mitzvah for a dear, dear friend. You might ask, “WHAT IS A MITZVAH?” The word “mitzvah” means “commandment.” In its strictest sense, it refers only to commandments instituted in the Torah; however, the word is commonly used in a more loose way to refer to any good deed.
Marilyn has battled cancer for such a long time that I thought I would make her a HEALING QUILT to lift her spirits. She is the mother of my good friend, Robin. I was very sneaky about how I went about creating this quilt. Robin told me what her mother’s favorite colors were. As you can see they are black and red. The patterns on the front and back were my own creation. Shopping for the fabric choices was lots of fun. I actually didn’t want a front or back but made both sides to be used equally. If you look closely there is a small square of an elephant, with his trunk lifted high. I had heard that meant GOOD LUCK. I just hope that my quilt will bring her healing energy, strength, and courage to wrap around her!
Not only did she receive this special gift today but I also made her some of my famous fried chicken for her dinner tonight.
