Stacks of Doilies

I was driving by a cemetery today while a funeral was taking place. The tent. The friends and family. All dressed in black, milling around, and I felt sad to see them. Then I saw the pallbearers carrying the casket toward them. The wave of pain hit me harder than it has in a very long time!

I had to come home and crochet furiously. That is how I got through the grief of Robert, and the pain of open-heart surgery for years. It's ridiculous, the stacks of doilies I have.


  1. Oh Bonnie, know you are loved and cared for. Big hug for you ((( Bonnie))) and I mean BIG...

  2. I'm sorry for the heartache that is so real and so powerful. I LOVE you! What a good way to deal with your grief though. I would love to see your stack of doilies!
