True Love


One of my colleagues is at her grandfather's funeral today. I had to share a story that gave me chills when I heard it. A few months ago both her grandparents started going downhill. One of them ended up at a hospice and the other has been in and out of the hospital since. Her grandmother has been in a comatose state for the past 3 weeks. On Sunday night late she woke up and told the nurse "He's gone. He's in a better place now." The nurse documented it since she hadn't spoken in over a month. They found out a few hours later that was when her husband was passing. They were clearly soul mates and had a bond that we can only hope to understand.

The above scarf is one I made and sold last Valentine's Day with hearts knitted into it and a few removable beads I attached.

Very touching story. Obviously they were communicating on a metaphysical level.

btw, that scarf is gorgeous. I absolutely love the hearts knitted into it!

I love stories like that...so beautiful how love can be so strong between two people that they are almost as one. Thanks Paige for sharing that with us and also sharing that lovely scarf.
