More years ago than I care to admit, I taught a group of fabulous seventh and eigth grade kids from the inner city of Chicago. Last year, through Facebook, I was able to get reaquainted with some of them. Last week I had the opportunity to meet up with several of them and WOW, I was pleasantly delighted to see how happy and successFULL they were.
Little by little I have been sending quilts to them and/or their children. Here's three I sent off to a wonderful gentlemen with the sweetest soul (and greatest laugh) who became a Chicago police officer, found true love with a twinkly eyed lady, and has two great kids with one on the way.
