Just one of the many comforts I received at my Mothers bedside was from Mary, a Hartford Hospital chaplain. After initially talking with her in the mid afternoon, she returned later with a Prayer Shawl knitted by the ladies from her church especially for patients and families at the hospital. She wrapped it around my shoulders and it’s warmth and comfort was overwhelming as we said prayers and the final service for my Mother.
“May God’s love be upon this shawl
and with you as it warms, comforts and embodies you.
Through our needlework, may it be a reminder
our prayers and thought are with you.”
