There is absolutely nothing like pretending to be a fly on the wall and just watching people love on people. The joy you get to witness in their faces is totally worth it. Last Saturday, at the Salt Lake Chapter of Quilts for Kids conducted at Quilter's Lodge I got to see so much joy in everyone's faces that I literally caught some of it and found myself singing on the way home.
Experienced attendees joyfully helped the less experienced even though they came to make a kit themselves. Other attendees allowed us to share the accomplishments of others by showing off finished quilts. Everyone was graciously patient as we put into practice a brand new system of checking people in and signing quilt kits out at the end. One team member even corrected someone...me :) ... with such joy that it did not even feel like correction... i.e. NO shame involved.
What a wonderful privilege it is to be a part of such a loving community! Thank you Quilter's Lodge for making the spreading of so much love possible.
