When a Custom Order Opens Your Heart
I am so glad that emcisaac asked me to make an Angel Bowl with Lid for her friend. Esther's dear friend's husband has cancer and doesn't have a very good prognosis. So she wanted to send her friend a little felted bowl with an angel needlefelted on the front. Esther is inserting tiny scrolls of vellum with inspriational notes inside the bowl so her friend can reach in at any time and be comforted.
Some of the notes she is placing in the bowl include:
Inhale deeply, let life flow in
Breathe slowly, listen to your heart beat
Exhale sadness, welcome lightness
Sigh, let it out, all the pain
Relax your toes, wiggle your fingers
Rest your mind, one thing at a time
Calm your heart, good will follow
Unwind and let your soul soar
Leisure at will, take a nap today, take two!
Stroll hand in hand with life
Wander with your heart
Meander with memories
Esther is a wonderful person to do this for her dear friend and I am honored that I could be apart of the comforting and healing process for her.
Who knew that this order would make me appreciate all the wonderful friends that I have and open my heart so much.
Thank you, Esther. You are an angel and an inspiration to us all.
