The Museum Director at one of my long-time grantwriting clients has become a dear friend over the years we've worked together. His church has been praying for me since the beginning of my cancer journey. He called me last week to tell me that they have knitted me a Prayer Shawl. I had never heard of this, so I Googled it, and apparently it is a world-wide ministry when people knit or crochet shaws for people going through particularly difficult challenges, praying for them as they create the shawl. The shawls are usually blessed at the church before being distributed. I will be meeting my friend one day next week after radiation to pick up my shawl from him. I can't tell you how touched I am by this very kind jesture. I wondered if any of you had heard of this ministry.
