As you all know I have been putting together a quilt for Cam
not just me, lot of people have been part of this, it really is a quilt made with love!
I really felt that I wanted to take this to Melbourne and deliver it personally,
now normally I don't mind other people delivering quilts, often I give them to someone
to hand on, but this quilt I really wanted to deliver.
David and I talked about it but it really is expensive to travel the Tasman,
and so I didn't know how to make it happen.
I knew I couldn't just wish it to happen, I needed to be a bit proactive.
So I mentioned it on Twitter and then I mentioned it on Facebook.
Although good things sometimes surprise us, sometimes we have to say it out loud
to really make something happen.
Late on Saturday night I got a message from Sophie,
saying this might be something the Sisterhood could do.
I went to sleep feeling very excited.
On Sunday Morning, Sophie and I messaged back and forward
and that afternoon she put the call out.
FOUR HOURS LATER we had enough money for my fare.
Words are not enough to explain how I feel about this.
I feel humbled by the kindness.
It really is quite a different thing to be on the receiving end of other people's generosity.
It's amazing. Thank you so much everybody.
I'm off to Melbourne on Friday night!
