A Spirit is Lifted

I have a friend who was diagnosed with cancer and had immediately gone into a deep depression.

I decided to let her know that her friends were with her every step of the way. I crocheted a throw using Homespun in purple and with pink worsted pink - the purple was for friendship and hope and the pink was for love. I used a V for victory stitch throughout and, when it came time to put the fringe on, each one of her senior friends knotted a section onto the throw while saying a prayer for her recovery.

My friend's entire attitude changed when presented with the throw and she immediately cheered up, knowing, as she said, "that there are friends who care for me".

She is finished with her chemo, has done well, stayed positive and her Homespun victory throw buoys her up when she is down.

I would never have believed that such a small act of kindness would have made such a difference to anyone.

I encourage other people to do small acts of love like this. It benefits the giver as much as the recipient.
