My family's Prayers
Created By: Laura Karowski

I wanted to share our story even though I don't actually have or belong to a ministry. The family members that worked on our Aunt's Prayer Shawl varied from the 2 and 3 year olds in the family to the 70+ youngsters. My aunt, who lives out of state, away from our large brood, was having yet another bout with cancer, this time in her colon. Her spirits were low so I decided that a prayer shawl might be the thing to help out. I started knitting it, then brought it, a camera and a get-well sign to the next family function we went to. EVERYONE worked to put on a few stitches. With me as the "camera man" and my Mom as the extra hands and instructor (sometimes a puppet master) guiding hands along the journey, family members would sit in a chair, knit a few stitches and say a prayer over the shawl, the little ones just telling her they loved her. When it was completed, a photo album was put together with the poster and all the good wishes on it, and the shawl that was full of love, good wishes, prayers, and yes, definitely a few mistakes was sent on it's way. When my aunt received it she called. We cried and then laughed over the captions put under each picture. But the best thing that came out of it was I said something to her that I hadn't said in years and it felt good...."I love you Aunt Tiny!"
