Farewell My Friend

Like so many of you I received an email from Katie yesterday with an update on our dear friend Cathey.

I am sad. Heartbroken. So many tears have fallen down my face as I think about our friend.  

This weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada. I think of Cathey's family and how difficult this is. My prayers are being directed their way in hope that they will find comfort in knowing Cathey is no longer in pain. 

Last night I struggled with this and I realized that although I am so extremely sad, I am indeed Thankful. 

I am thankful for this space and our stitching community, without which I would never have met such an inspiring lady. 

I am thankful for the stories and laughs we shared. 

I am thankful that Cathey was blessed with motherhood and that her incredible spirit lives on in her sweet Junior. 

I am thankful for the strength of her dear friend Katie, who took the time to inform us all and share some special memories she has, during a most difficult hour. 

I am thankful that I can call Cathey my friend.
