Great People Doing Great Things

Now, here's a group of fabulous ladies.  They are a couple dozen ladies who came together this past week to make comfort quilts for seriously ill and traumatized children in our community.  And this is not the first time they have done this, nope, they do it every month.  And some of them have been doing this for the past seven years.  Like I said "THEY ARE FABULOUS!"  They are known as the Peace by Piece Quilters.

This time of year we tend to reflect on the past year (and sometimes our lives).  We Americans are taught to think about the things we are thankful for and our ancestors even created a holiday that gives us permission to stop and just be thankful for a day.  I recently read a quote (but for the life of me can't remember where) that has got me thinkingWe always think about what we are thankful for at this time of year, but here's the question: What have you done that has made other people thankful?

I think the ladies in the picture have an answer to this question.  What they do every month does better the lives of children.  In some cases the comfort of a handmade quilt may even change the life of the child receiving it.
