My sister is one of the most giving people I...
Created By: Eileen Schmidt

My sister is one of the most giving people I know. Several years ago her house was flooded. They lost everything on their first floor-computer, washer, dryer, hot water heater,furnace and her husband's car which was parked in their garage. That night after trying to clean up some of the mess she finally went to the Red Cross Shelter because she wanted her husband who is diabetic to have a hot meal. The shelter was at the local school and when my sister arrived she found the school nurse who as the only medical personnel there had had no relief. My sister quickly ate her meal. Drove back to her home and put on her uniform and returned to the school and took over the night shift so that the school nurse could go home and see to her own family.

Unbelieveably, my sister's house was flooded again last year- twice- and this time her husband who was recovering from surgery came down from an infection as a result of the contents of the water that entered their home. She was at a very low point. Living 3000 miles away I felt very frustrated at my inability to help her so I started knitting a prayer shawl. I used a beautiful red shade of the Homespun yarn and a pattern from the prayer shawl book. I prayed over every stitch in that shawl. Before I left to go back East I asked our parish priest to bless it. When I gave it to my sister I told her that any time she got sad or overwhelmed she could put that shawl around her and feel me giving her a hug. She really loved it. I have made 4 other prayer shawls and each of the recipients was really grateful. Thanks for the inspiration and the tools to make this work possible.
