Quilt Canada and why am I a quilter....

It is a wonderful opportunity to go to Quilt Canada today. Quilt Canada 2014

If you have never been to the Niagara Area it truly is a beautiful spot to visit. Of course there is Niagara Falls always a wonder but we have a micro climate that allows for the growing of grapes and tender fruit. So we have lots of wineries to visit. Strawberries are in season now and coming fresh from the field.

There is a world class theaters in Shaw in Niagara on the Lake, Forts that reenact like Fort George and Fort Erie. The Welland Canal  from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.

Sometimes I forget what a wonderful place I get to live in.

Sometimes I forget what blessings I have. This week friends lost their 18 year old son to an accident. How to walk along side them? I guess it is just to be there. The Dad said last night ... I think I will just need a lot of hugs... I can do that. The mom said she would like to hear the stories I remember about their son. I can do that.

Quilters know about how to give. I enjoy my guilds because of their generosity towards others. Their love and kindness.

So off I go to get refreshed. To spend the day laughing and seeing wondrous things. This will help fill my cup so I can just be and help my friends walk the journey that all parents fear.
