Stellar Stars

It's been two weeks since my last post.  Where have I been you may ask.  Well, my Wednesdays have been spent with some stellar stars.
 Like the twenty something young artist who has put her life on hold to fight a mighty battle.  She is inspiring and brave.  I loved hearing about her hopes and dreams for the future.  May she win her battle and live her dreams. 
 Then there were the two mothers that were juggling treatments, soccer games and music lessons.  Valiant women  setting an example of courage and hope for their children.  Also the grandmother trying to decide her battle plan.  A tough choice between prolonged life and uncomfortable side effects.  I pray they all will have wisdom to know how best to fight there battles.
 Finally the army ranger that kept us laughing with his fun stories and songs.  He knew how to rally the troops and keep us fighting for a better day.  While I listened to their stories I big stitched on my spiderweb quilt.  My goal was to have it done when my treatments where done.  I didn't quite make it but I as I recovered yesterday I put in the final stitches.
And thanks to these stellar stars I have a name for this happy life filled quilt.  I'm calling it Stellar Stars caught in a Web.  In memory of the way these fabulous people who inspired me and brought joy to my life.
