Dan's Heart

A friend's daughter is going through some medical issues... she's just 22 and awaiting results of tests of whether she has cancer and a couple other issues.... anyway, even tho I've never met his daughter I created the afghan pictured for her...  he was blown away when I gave it to him to give to her (he actually thought I'd bought it - I explained that I'd made it)... yesterday, as he was driving us to Rick's nursing facility he told me that when he gave it to his daughter she cried!  She couldn't believe that someone she never met would give her such a gift!

My first blog...

So here I go... blogging.  Not sure what to blog about... of course there are lots of things that I could go on about but doubt very seriously that anyone (including me) would really be interested.  That said... away I go!
