A Summer Read Turns Into A Summer Helping Hand!
Poh is practicing what she is reading as well. This past month my community lost a very special young man. His parents asked me to make a quilt from his t-shirts, an honor that still leaves me breathless. When the box arrived I simply could not open it. It was Poh who came over and sat next to me, and then grabbed the scissors and pushed me to begin the task of preparing the blocks before I had time to think. Knowing I could not do this alone, she camped out in my home for 3 1/2 straight days until we finished the quilt and passed it on to be sewn together by a long-arm quilter. Poh was my angel for this project and asked for nothing in return. The ripples will extend far beyond the 3 days of time Poh gave me, and Cami's book has been a wonderful inspiration to share in this practice of abundance and mindfulness!
