Tomorrow I'll be mailing Anne Landre the stitched name of the fallen soldier she sent me. I chose a bright golden yellow because it feels energetic and joyful to me and that is the type of person Holly seems to have been. Stitching Holly's name lead me naturally to concentrating only on her for the full hour it took me. I thought of her smile and wondered if I will get a chance to meet her in Heaven. I would really like that.
I am thankful I was able to participate in the Mother's Day Project because I had the opportunity to learn about Holly and I'm not tuning out the war in Iraq any longer.
