Prayer Shawls for Rush Charity Drive Giveaway [3]As a reminder, the rules are as follows:

Knit or crochet a shawl, big enough to comfort someone, and weave a few warm and healing thoughts into it as you work.  Then, box it up and send it to us.  The only thing you MUST DO is put a slip of paper/card/something INSIDE the box so we know who sent it.  Information on the outside of the box does not count!  

What is your favorite comforting quote or thought?
