Honoring Veterans – A HUGE Thank You

Just a few weeks in the past, Jessica, a girl in a quilting Fb group I’m a member of requested for help with offering quilts to honor veterans on Veteran’s Day. I wished to assist, so I completed a rescue high and despatched it off to Jessica. It was the very best I might do on brief discover.

Our Particular Veteran

I let you know what – an image really is value a thousand phrases. Jessica is on the best, is presenting the quilt to at least one unsuspecting Mrs. Moore, a Navy veteran who served three excursions of responsibility as a barber.

Jessica says, “she cherished it.” I can see clearly see that she did – which is strictly WHY I quilt and donate. What an incredible, joyful, image.

Right here’s the remainder of the presentation collection of images.

Initially, Mrs. Moore doesn’t know what’s going on. I’m suspecting right here that her colleagues holding the quilt are in on the shock.

Mrs. Moore has papers in her hand, so Jessica clearly caught her mid-something.

Thanks, Mrs. Moore, and all the opposite deserving veterans in the present day. I want we might make a quilt for every one among you!

Jessica

Talking of deserving, I wish to say a phrase about Jessica too.

Along with coordinating the development and presentation of quilts to 7 veterans in the present day, Jessica is, herself, in barber college. She’s younger, and spunky, a navy spouse and Mother, works, AND is in class as well. That white jacket is her barber smock.

So, for any of the remainder of us who suppose younger folks don’t care, or that we don’t have time to get issues executed – let’s suppose once more and look to Jessica and Mrs.Moore for inspiration. Each one among us can do one thing to make life higher for another person.

Thanks, Jessica, on your caring coronary heart and making time for the 7 veterans who acquired quilts in the present day due to your efforts! You go, lady!!! (PS – I really like your pink hair. I need purple.)
