GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
Hello there to all my friends around the world,
Well, it's nearly Christmas and I don't know about you, but my household is getting busier by the minute. Baking, wrapping, Christmas trees, shopping and endless family activity. It certainly is a time for everyone to pull together and celebrate our deep connections!
But amidst all this, my mind has been occupied by the happenings in blogville and the incredible love which is prevailing at the moment. My heart continues to want to reach out to Sandra during her time of need. But we all feel so helpless.
Today, I thought I'd put up a picture of my own little '6 inch x 6 inch' effort towards the memory quilt which Agnes at DACHSIES WITH MOXIE is putting together for Sandra.

My 'heart-dog', ie Angel Maxdog is in the background and the blue colour of his heart is meant to blend into the 'sky'. The 'sky' symbolises the place where all animals who have crossed the Rainbow bridge find their resting place. The sky also symbolises our connections to bloggers across the world. The four little hearts in the square represent 'us' here in South Africa - Tammy, Toffee, Toby and me (Maxmom).
My personal message attached to our little square is this:
"We are sending all our 'hearts' and love to Sandra and her family. We are all in this together."
What a fabulous idea put together by some of the incredibly compassionate, talented and creative thinkers in blogville! Thank you to Agnes for putting this particular quilt together. I'll be posting my little square off tomorrow in the hope that it gets to the USA before the deadline.
Thank you to all the bloggers who have initiated the opportunity for us all to participate in these loving gestures. I never cease to be amazed by the generosity and compassion of the bloggers in our community - not to mention those special bloggers who take it upon themselves to get the ball rolling to make something beautiful happen.
May I take this opportunity to wish all my friends a wonderful, happy and peaceful Christmas. Thank you for what you have all meant to me during this past year. I cannot begin to tell you how much you continue to enrich my life.
