Hugs. Did You Know You Could Mail Them?

My Sister-In-Law, Cathy, is battling cancer. She has been having a rough time of it lately and really needed a hug, only she lives over 2000 miles away. So I knit her a prayer shawl, boxed it up and sent it on it’s way.

Now she can wrap herself up in a hug any time she needs it. Smile Love you, Cathy.

What a sweet idea! I guess if a person didn't knit or crochet they could make a "hug" out of fleece! Thanks for sharing! Kim

And the warmth of your 'hug' will free up Cathy's strength to battle her cancer!

More prayers are heading her way...

Cathy & the shawl are beautiful. Isn't it wonderful what wool, 2 pointy sticks, willing hands and a loving heart can make!
