Mama's prayer shawl
Created By:

I had heard about prayer shawls from a patient at the doctor's office where I work, and my Mom had recently been diagnosed with lung and liver cancer. The lady who showed me the prayer shawl, was knitting it, I don't know how to knit, but I can crochet. So, I knew I could find a pattern on your web site, and I did. I wanted it to be bright and cheerfull, so I used a pretty teal blue and a fushia pink with added fun fur. I prayed for Mama and thought about her with every sitch. I was in a really big hurry, because they told her people in her situation typically lived a year. She was diagnosed in August of 2007, and went to chemo every Friday. I was able to give her the shawl very soon after she was diagnosed, and she carried it with her to chemo every week, and kept with her, in her wheel chair while she was at home. She did really well with chemo and she responded very well, and we had alot of hope, but unfortuatley God decided she had had enough and it was time for her to come home. On July 14, 2008, she had a heart attack and passed away. I am proud to say everyone agreed the shawl should be buried with her, accros her lap as it had been through those few short months. I feel it gave her comfort, and she was also a crocheter and she knows it was made with love and it will be with her forever! Thank you for allowing me to share my story.

God Bless You!
