A gift for Heather
Created By: Dianna Davis

I don't belong to a specific ministry, nor have I started my own. But if I feel in my heart that someone can benefit from a random act of kindness, then I do something about it. I read the article and instructions regarding prayer shawls. I decided to try making one, without anyone in mind, except my sister. My sister passed away in 2001 from complications due to diabetes. I started crocheting the shawl with her favorite colors, a variegated yarn of pinks and purples. I would work on the shawl on breaks and lunchtimes at work. A co-worker commented on my project and asked about prayer shawls. She loved the colors I was using. She also said her daughter, Heather, was suffering with complications from her diabetes and was slowly getting worse every week. I felt something pull at my heart and remembered how my sister had said she got so cold during dialysis. My co-worker's daughter was going through dialysis 3 times a week. So I diligently worked on completing the shawl and made it a bit bigger than the instructions called for. When I completed the shawl, I washed it and carefully put it in a huge zip top bag. I went in to work that night and when my friend asked about my progress, I showed her the shawl. She loved it! It was then that I said, "Take this as a gift from me and my sister. Give it to Heather to help her get better." We both cried. My co-worker hugged me and showed everyone what I'd done! She gave the shawl to Heather, who fell in love with it! I'm sad to say that Heather is not doing any better, she's getting still worse every week. But I keep the faith that God will take care of her when the doctors can't.
