Pictures from a soldier

Every once in a while a soldier sends some pictures my way of them with their quilt. These just make my heart happy. This soldier was in the transitional housing while deciding his best route of medical care. His wife is able to be with him, and he was so surprised to recieve a quilt.




This quilt was actually given away almost two years ago, so you have to know how important these are to these soldiers - the pictures were just sent at the beginning of the month. They are defineatly a great source of comfort, and seem to rarely leave their side!

it is nice to know the quilts are really touching a soldiers life. It may not be able to take away and pains or discomforts.but it sure feels good to wrap them in a quilt made with love.
