Prayer shawl revisited

A couple of weeks ago, I finally completed the comfort/prayer shawl that I was making for a friend who was diagnosed with lung cancer. We were at a BBQ together, and she was happy to get out and be around friends. I told her that I made something for her. She was speechless when she received the shawl. I told her that every stitch was stitched with a prayer and good thoughts for a quick recovery. I told her that soon it will be chilly and it will come in handy. I also told her to wear it when she is going through her chemo treatments. She was so thankful.
This past Friday I received a call from her. She said that she was wearing the shawl and realized how much work went into the shawl. She was again, so thankful. She said she was also getting a lot of compliments on it when she wore it to the hospital clinic. She sounded so well and had good spirits. Carol is a very spiritual person. In fact, she owned a metaphysical store. She is using a lot of guided imagery during her radiation and chemo. She believes that her recovery is not only based on medical treatments, but also a mind, body and soul perspective. She is very wise. Sending positive energy and get well vibes to you, Carol.
