|From As The Quilts Turn|
Now for the story her husband shared with us at the lunch today. I get goose bumps every time I think about it. I'm not overly religious, although I do believe there is an Almighty Father. Believe me, I'm not going to get preachy because that is so NOT me. Any how. Today Joe shared that Bev received a hydrangea bush when she finished her Catholic classes and became a member of the Catholic church. The bush never bloomed, but it has survived 13 years. Joe shared with us that he looked at the bush Sunday after Bev passed and it had a single bloom on it. Today he checked the bush before leaving for the funeral and it was loaded with blooms. He told us that he felt God was talking to him. I really have to believe he was. My take was that he was saying not to forget the beauty in things or people. And even though things hurt right now, you will see that beauty again in all things.
So with that, thank you for letting me share about my BEAUTIFUL friend Beverly.
