Kristin, so glad that your quilt made it to you safely and that you like it.

I wanted to co-ordinate this quilt for you to pay-it-forward for all the time and work you put into organizing the mailbox surprise groups for this year. And I love something you posted in that group, this is from Feb 7th

 

"I have always held firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little something to bring some sunshine and smiles to somebody's day"

I'm glad to be a part of something that bought some sunshine and smiles to your day today!

Kristin (KAlbrecht):

OMG!!!!!!!!

I just got the mail.  And what did I find, but a most gorgeous quilt obviously full of love from all of you.  THANK YOU is not NEAR enough to express my deepest gratitude for the thoughtfulness that was obviously put into this work of art.  I simply don't know what to say.  It is just amazing.  

I honestly believe my dad died for a reason when he did . . . so that I could benefit from his frugal nature of saving money so that I can go on disability without any worries about money.  I cannot feel sorry for myself, or ask for any sympathy.  I've felt dad and mom watching over me together and smiling.  I know they would both approve of the recent changes to my life.  Mom and dad taught me to always be true to my word and through that message I've accomplished great things in my life.  My brother and sister sadly, have gone the other way.  I don't know how three people who came from the same mother and father can have completely different outlooks on life.  I've dealt with health problems since I was 13 years old and because of that I've grown to appreciate life, appreciate friends who stand by me no matter what, and to help others less fortunate.  The only thing I can pray for with my brother and sister, is that someday they too will understand the meaning of life.  I figure when I die, people won't care how many college degrees I have, where I've traveled to, where I live, or who I impressed . . . what's going to be important is what I do/did to make this world a better place for ALL.  I honestly believe that what we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

I truly honestly value the friendships I've made here on QCA more than you will ever know.  My paternal grandmother once told me that a true friend is the one human soul we can always count on, who know the best and worst of use, and who remains by our side in spite of our faults.

Richard is indeed my rock . . . he is my best friend.  We compliment each other well . . . and that is proven by our 27 years of marriage . . . we don't take advantage of each other, and we compliment each others weaknesses and strengths very well.  I don't know where I would be today without Richard by my side.  I can honestly say that each one of my friends here on QCA is a true friend and friendships that I will cherish . . . ALWAYS!

I wish I could think of SOMETHING to repay all your kindness . . . at least I know I will be able to pay-it-forward all your generosity, thoughtfulness, kindness and prayers.

THANK YOU!

THANK YOU!

THANK YOU!

(Especially to Jacy for coordinating this amazing gift)

Cheers!

Kristen,

I so glad you got the quilt and that you are able to feel the love put into it.

I'm also sorry the new stimulator has not worked as expected. You and yours will remain in my prayers.

Hey, does anyone have any tissues left?? I need some. Tears for such joy.

Kristen, we all consider you such a great friend to each of us, I am sure. As such, a simple thank you is sufficent for us. We need no other then that.

Now, I will continue, as will  we all, that your health issues are finally corrected. Be happy with this time for just you and Richard.Rretirement is so special. It doesn;t matter if it is for medical reasons or just because it is time to no longer work outside your home. I am finding that this is the best of times. We are just free to be......

Take care, sweet lady. And thanks, for all the love you bestow on US!

Sukochi

Jacy's, I finally got to this site and I just saw the quilt. You did an amazing job quilting it. I've been quite busy this week as DS1 is here on holidays.  I am proud to have a small part in this quilt and I hope Kristin can feel our love and prayers through the quilt.

Kristin, I'm so sorry the device did not work. I hope your doctors will be able to find a solution to alleviate your pain.

reaching the decision of going on permanent disability was obviously very difficult but the best for you at this point. 

Im so happy that you like your quilt. When you use it think that you are getting a group hug from all of  us. I will keep you in my prayers in the hope they will get a solution for you.

i think you are a very strong woman and you are lucky to have married your best friend like I did.

I received an email from Kristin this morning, She is going in for a second attempt to activate the neurostimulator. I hope she will have better results this time.
