You may know her, remember her from this circle.

She has been here as long as I can recall.

On and off, she tells her own stories, on her own various blogs

Over the years

She told stories of making and teaching with cloth.

She shared amazing photographs...and insights.

She shared her heartfelt writing.

She shared herself.

 ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ 

I was so happy to see her recent post in my inbox, as I knew she would offer up something good, something important...and she did. She has been a nurse through this time of covid Her words, feelings matter. 

She matters, to me, her family, and the world at large.

I am honored to consider her my friend.

Sending you Big Love Serena.

❤️ 🤲🏼 ❤️

  5. I truly believe that those who commit themselves to the caring of others, have an additional chromosome, the CA factor, compassionate angel. The reality is that yes, nurses are angels among us but they are also human. Serena's words attest to what they are facing, day in an day out, as they continue to give of themselves, as they continue to hold onto the reality of what they face and how they rise to meet the challenges, with knowledge, caring and integrity...this was a powerful read. Tank you Nancy for bringing it here and thank you Serena.
