My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Monday, November 23, 2009


It has been almost a week since I last wrote.  I have been slowly recovering from Pneumonia, and beginning to sound my usual self.  That, in itself, is a blessing, as I desperately want to visit my sister-in-law who has become ill and who is in ICU as I write this.

Anne, or "Nanda" as she is known to her family, was born in Guyana and came to Canada at 15 years of age.  She has two children, a boy and a girl, and is "nana" to Ethan, who is two.   She is a tough little cookie, and I am sure that she will do well recovering from this illness.  She has the support of a large family... a husband that has not left her side since she became ill....and two children that love her dearly.

What does one do from a distance?  Pray, encourage, support... and make quilts.  I am presently making Anne a Ragg Quilt which I hope will give her pleasure, and warmth.  I will post pics when it is completed.

So... Please send healing thoughts and prayers her way.  Thank you.

  1. You've got my prayers sent to Nanda. I hope she is not too terribly sick, and I am so happy to hear that you are getting well yourself. The season is upon us, isn't it? Big hugs across the border to you...

  2. Aww, Thanks Djan. That means a lot.

  3. ((Bless you)) and bless your dear ones going through so much. It is so special that you have the support of each other. :o)

  4. I have a new, scented candle the colour of her jumper in the photo which I will light tonight and think of her.

  5. Thank you...thank all of you ...for your kind thoughts, and best wishes.
