Maw-Maw's gift
Created By: Staci Ellard

My grandmother taught me how to crochet abput six years ago. She was such a patient teacher that made every lesson a good time. Last Nov. when she called me and asked me to teach her how to crochet I knew something was wrong. She had volunteered to help with the prayer shawl ministry with her church but couldn't remember how to read the pattern or how to hold the hook. We had a great time that night even though it broke my heart to see her so sick. She was severly dehydrated and it mimicked the signs of dementia. In January she was admitted to the MICU for complications of Congestive Heart Failure. The Prayer Shawl group brought her a beautiful shawl with all the colors of fall leaves. She was on life support so we couldn't wrap it around her, instead we laid it across her feet to keep them warm. I promised her I would finish that shawl we had started together. We sat in the waiting room for almost a month until I finally bought beautiful yarn with purple (her favorite)greens and blues. I sat in the waiting room and started on the shawl to send to the church from my Maw-Maw and me. The first 6 rows were a little off I was worried and tense but I couln't take them out because that afternoonwhen we went back to visit with her we held her and sang to her until she passed. About a week after her funeral I picked up the shawl to finish it. There were many tears and prayers from me woven into that shawl and I pray the person that recieves it is as blessed by it as I was. I am forever grateful for all those nights laughing on Maw-Maw's couch.
