A note from Sue ~ May 24, 2010

A note from Sue ~ May 24, 2010

Postby Margo » Mon May 24, 2010 4:48 am

This is part of an e-mail note I got from Sue this morning, and I thought it was appropriate to post it here. As usual, you are welcome to leave notes here for Sue to read when she has time.

I really want to let everyone know how much I appreciate the quilts – they are beautiful and the notes are wonderful. I want to send some special thanks (hand-written notes) to some of the folks who helped organize all this – can you help me identify those people? That would be wonderful. In the meantime, wherever it is appropriate on the TQS website, please let folks know that it is not for lack of gratitude that I have not thanked everyone – I am still blown away by their kindnesses and concerns and prayers and support. As you know, being a caregiver is more than a 24-hour job and Jack is just taking an enormous amount of time and energy right now – being at home is great, but it put a huge workload on me that consumes every waking second. Let them know that the thank you is coming – and their efforts are so very much appreciated.

More later – gotta take care of my guy right now.

Sue, please know we can only help you from afar and didn't make the quilts for the thanks--only as a tangible reminder of the love, care and prayers we all send your way. Just do what you have to do right now to take care of yourself and your beloved.

Sue, I was honored to have had a small part in the making of the quilts and no thanks are necessary. Just know that we all appreciate your contribution to The Quilt Show, and hope Jack continues on the road to recovery and that you get some much needed rest.

Sue! We love you and Jack!! Helping on the quilts let us do "something" for you two. We all felt helpless....with the quilt projects it let us work out our feelings with all that you're going through. There is something about making the block and thinking about what the quilt will look like when everyone contributes...that soothes me in so many ways. It also makes me smile. You've given so much to so's our pleasure to give back to you and Jack!! ((((Hugs!)))) Debbie

Dear Sue, you've given us all so much, these quilts seem like very little in return -- they allowed us to feel a little less helpless. No thanks are necessary. Please just put your efforts into helping Jack get well and taking care of yourself -- this all has to be taking a huge toll on you, too, so please take care! Hugs, Robin

You need to be strong for Jack now. Don't worry about thanks. We wanted to do something to show you that both of you are part of our family and we take care of our own.

I second all of the above! No need to spend your precious time writing notes to us - you have already expressed more than once how much you appreciate what we have done for you and Jack. It's the least we could do for you, you have done soooo much for us. This was our way to let you know how much we really care for you both! Take care of yourself too, Sue- caretaking is draining.
