Everyone has their own story and memories of the one year
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and I'm no different.
I've put most of my experiences on a live journal and today
have made an entry of my memories about last year if you're inclined
to read it.
The only quilty thing there is the fact that I put them all
in plastic to prevent potential water damage. I'm happy to report
none were damaged, at least not until we moved and had to use
some for furniture padding. But that's another story.
As for today and tomorrow, I'm just very grateful to be here to tell
you the story.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
I have no words, Terri.  And I only read a few snippets - couldn't
manage the whole.  Let us hope that, somehow, the world of the south
comes out a better place than it has now become.  I'm not judging, just
hoping.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
Hey Terry:

Yes everyone has their story to tell and like you I am so grateful that
I am still here to tell about it.  One year later my recovery story is
that about 90 percent of every thing is repaired and am living
comfortably.  My bright light in this past year has been my Hug Quilt I
received  last March while heading to a Quilt Show in Pensacola with
Polly.  When I am tired both physically and mentally all I have to do
it pass by my bedroom and there lies that sunny quilt on my bed.  And
yes as I sit here packing  to run from the first hurricane of the
season and coming this way, that quilt reminds me I will  get through
this emergency too.

Hugs to you Terri and praying we make it through this season without as
much as a drop of rain from any of the storms.

Hey Ms. Kate,
If my prayers are strong enough to keep any wind higher than 20mph
away from you this year then Ernesto is as good as gone.
I'm tickled you have a hug quilt to brighten you up. Had I been
able to I'd have loved to join in on that for you although I
don't know what good it would have done as I didn't have an
unsresticted zipcode for postal services for months on end!
I'll be thinking of you and yours and hugs right back at you.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
I am so weary of hurricane recovery and hurricane preparation that I don't
want to talk about either.
         I do, however, certainly want to talk about our Hug quilt.  When
they drop by, I've noticed that our DDs and our neighbors have to go down
the hall to my Hug, put their hands on it for a few moments, smile and feel
the love.  That precious expression continually blesses  a lot of hearts and
lives.  It is visible, tangible, powerful evidence that people truly do
care.  How very wonderful.  I profoundly thank you all.  If you didn't get
to be a part of our hugs, we understand.  Boy! life does get in the way.
Never, ever miss an opportunity to be a part of one if you possibly can.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
Polly, I've only participated in a couple hugs.....my intentions are always
good but my follow through is lousy.  Your post has reinforced my resolution
to be better about this....it's more than a quilt, isn't it?  I wish my name
was on YOUR hug....you mean a lot to me.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
Well, then, dear friend, one day we'll find a way to let you sign our hug.
Meanwhile do chime in when other hug calls present themselves.  I print hug
announcements and keep them here in front of me.  I try to respond just as
quickly as possible.  Hugs blocks can run from a simple signed blank all the
way to a ridiculous grinning gator.  You wouldn't believe the racket going
on here.   The neighbors haven't complained.  They especially love the hug.

Re: OT Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina
I do better when I have a closer time limit than a longer one.
For some reason if I have too much time I put it off.

I haven't gotten any requests in a while.  Have I missed any Karen?

Nope, you've gotten them all.  Last one was at least a month ago.
