This week Misti presented me with a check for nearly $400 to put towards Grey's quilt!
I just wanted to take a second to thank all of you that participated in her fundraiser. I can't tell you how excited I am to have a quilt made out of Grey's things. I have to be honest, I am really getting impatient to get started. I'm still looking for someone to do it. The idea of turning over all I have left of Grey terrifies me. But when the right person comes along, I'll know. If any of you out there know anyone who quilts, please let me know.
I have a great design in mind. I'd like to incorporate a few things into it; jungle animals (which most of his clothes have), Greyson's Law (the flag of Texas), and stars (already part of the flag). I want each square to have a Texas flag in it. The Texas flag has 4 parts to it. I want each of those parts to be different articles of his clothing, blankets, or bibs. Every flag will look different. I don't know that I'm explaining it well, but in my head, it looks amazing!
Misti - A thousand times you've told me not to thank you. So instead of my words, I can only show you in love. I hope I show you enough. Your passion amazes me! I have no doubt that Grey uses you to make sure that I'm OK and that I have what I need. And for being open to that, I will never be able to thank you enough.
