Letter to Grace.

Oh Grace!!! I can't believe it!!!
After a restless night last night where I think someone tried to come in through my front door after I went upstairs to bed, I was a little reluctant about coming home tonight. When I got there, there was an unexpected package waiting for me. I hesitated just a moment, remembering the sounds of the door jostling from the night before and wondering what my late night visitor might have left me. I didn't remember ordering anything on line and wasn't expecting any packages so I was a little confused. And then I opened it! WOW!!! I can't even begin to tell you the impact your loving gift made on my night! I started crying.. but for the first time in a long while the tears were good tears. I couldn't believe that someone who doesn't know me would do something so caring and wonderful for me. I absolutely love it! I'm thinking of sleeping with it tonight as a sort of cloak of comfort, or as my friend Ruth (who I immediately called) called it, my very own invisibility cloak, now nothing can hurt me. I like that thought.
I don't know how I can ever thank you enough.
Wendy

and yes its supposed to have those very long ends on it, you add extra stitches to acheive it so it gives you more of a winglike aspect!!

Oh, I know how much Grace's shawl warms me, and never fails to make me smile all these months later, so enjoy my friend. You are loved, even if for many of us, it's from afar!
