Unexpected Results
Created By: M MICHELE

When I first read of the ministry, I was touched by it. With a busy life, I so many times feel unavailable for friends and family in crisis. I enjoy knitting at the end of the day to relax and knitting these shawls gives me a purpose as well as relaxation.

My first shawl was sent to the wife of my cousin. She was watching her husband of many years hang onto life after a tragic medical accident. She was miles from home trying to get proper care for her husband and the father of their child. I sent this to the family for a way to comfort them and to let them know they weren't alone and the thoughts and prayers of family far away were with them.

My second shawl was passed to my sister-in-law while she was going thru a tremendous personal issue. She couldn't open the door when I was there, but when she opened the packaged she called me weeping. Even though we could not communicate in normal verbal ways, she knew that I was standing with her and the hugs that shawl was bringing were for her and her family.

I have given another to an aunt in the hospital. It was summer and the question came up as to what to do with it. I suggested that sometimes hospital rooms are chilly and visitors may need it when she wasn't needing it. She has recovered after several months and she wanted to return it. I suggested that she keep for trips on airplanes or to pass it on to someone else that may need a "hug".

I love making these shawls. They provide warmth for me while I make them and warmth for others when I gift them.
