A Special Day

This morning was the awards ceremony for the 2010 American Red Cross "Heroes of the Heartland." Nineteen people received awards before a breakfast crowd of at least 500 people. They were recognized for contributions in emergency situations, health care, international outreach, community outreach, and the like.

I was nominated as a 2010 "hero" because of the Stitchin' Mission quiltmaking ministry. Neither I nor 31 other nominees received an award, but it was a lovely ceremony. I was especially pleased to invite Michelle (on the left in the photo) to join me. She has been a loyal Stitchin' Mission supporter, devotedly helping at nearly every one of the 21 Stitchin' Missions there have been since 2003.

I am deeply grateful for her continued support, as well as the support of numerous others. Without them, Stitchin' Mission would not be possible. Thank you everyone!

Congratulations Linda, I think a nomination is just as good as an award. Keep up the good work!
