It's in the Mail

The package is in the mail and on it's way to Mary. I don't think I've ever wrapped or sent a package that made me feel the way I did with this one. This could be the last thing I ever get to send to her because we just don't know how much time she has left. This makes it the most important package I've ever sent. I'm still working up the strength to call her. I don't want to regret that I didn't make one more call. But, I don't want to call her and not be able to speak because of tears and a huge knot in my throat. I'm hoping I can do it later today.

When I put the post up yesterday about Mary's hat and cowl set, and listed it on the side with all of my other 2009 finished projects, I noticed that the first project of the year was a hat for Mary and the very last one of this year is for Mary. I'm not sure what word or words to connect to that. Just that I find it interesting.

She's going to love the gift. I hope you called. It had to be difficult. Hugs and best wishes for 2010.

If you can't call, send her a thank you card, to thank her for all the things you remember or think of when you think of her.

How wonderful that you took the time and trouble to offer some comfort straight from your own needles. I'm sure she and her daughter will be most touched by your thoughtfulness as they travel together along her final path.
