The Quilt

My sister in law Wendy had this quilt made for my sister Joanne. It is so beautiful & was such a wonderful thing for Wendy to do. Wendy's sister made it, she is very talented!!
As you can see it is a quilt to acknowledge Joanne's fight with cancer. The saying that is written below on one of the squares is in Latin & means "Through difficulties to the stars" ....beautiful
Joanne is doing great, her treatments are finished. In April she will go back for a CT scan to see where the cancer is at, then we will take it from there.
Joanne has been an inspiration to me, she has taken this all on with such courage, actually handling it better then me. How I love her ♥

Wow, it is gorgeous. It almost made me cry. It means so much to have something like that when your sister is going through what she has been.

God bless your sister and her fight. I do have to say you don't know how you would handle the same situation if it were you. Strength comes out of nowhere in extremely difficult situations and you would be surprised how much you have.
