More than a year ago I was able to take part in a group that was making bereavement gowns for our local IHC’s Angel Watch Bereavement Program.
The original post is here: Bereavement Gowns.
It was a unique experience.
Since then I’ve talked to many women who have been touched by Angel Watch or similar programs.
Every one grieves differently.
Some women have been thankful for the gowns, others a blanket they received, others have cherished a bracelet or piece of jewelry. And while the items that meant most vary one thing almost all of them have in common is that they were given to them as gifts.
Something kind that someone else gave to them.
I feel like that is the point of Skirting the Issue…just doing something kind for someone else…someone who needs a moment of mercy and love and kindness.
I don’t have a lot to give…but making a handmade gift with care…that is something I can do.
Tomorrow we’ll be back with links to patterns if you’d like to make bereavement gowns along with us.
Have a great Monday.
