How my heart breaks for these mothers.
And the how many times did the scenes of these mothers and their children play over and over in my mind as I sewed?
I felt so unworthy to make something that will hold something so precious. As I worked I realized that it is impossible to make anything perfect enough to house these tiny babies and I wished for a way to stitch comfort for their mothers into the seams.
This project affected me. And while I usually can’t stop talking there isn’t a lot I’m willing to share so I will end this post with two last items:
I’ll pray for the mothers who receive these garments…pray for them to receive strength and my love along with them.
I am so thankful for this experience…it has given me a chance to reflect on something I’ve really wanted to do. Something Elizabeth and I are planning for July that everyone will be able to take part in. Helping other mothers, other women, to be strong—is important.
“We can do no great things—only small things with great love.”
Enjoy your day.
