Giving to Others Comes Back 100 Fold

Dear Lion Brand,

I live in Massachusetts. My Mom was diagnosed with cancer this past January and received a shawl from a parish I was a member of long ago in Connecticut. The overwhelming emotion that the shawl brought to us prompted me to begin a Ministry here in Hatfield.

It has been a wonderful gathering of women - knitting and stories. Our time together is special and spans all age groups and generations. It is a blessing to share the time and the stories of the wonderful person that will be receiving the shawl.

My mother is battling stomach cancer and has had surgery and undergone months upon months of chemo. She has knitted half a dozen shawls and finds that the giving to others has come back to her 100 fold. It keeps her busy on days when she is well enough to knit.

We have delivered 24 shawls and the cards and thanks in response to the shawls has been amazing. The sick and their families appreciate it as much as Mother & I did!

I can not think of a better way to share love and prayers with those in need.

I am grateful to be a part of this and hopeful that ministries like this will continue to grow and make the world a better place.

Thanks for the opportunity to share.

Teresa Weybrew
