    Dear Sheri, this is Diane, aka TheBluesky. Yes, I was my pretty mushy self on the forum, wanting to let all that were in that space with me, for the time I was there, to know how much I embraced all of their history, however diverse, we WERE MOMS.

    As I read through your book (Done With The Crying), forced myself to do the exercises, I turned my soul a few times, but soon I saw, realized, that there was no option, if I were to maintain my physical and emotional health, I had to make a solid commitment to accept the soul journey I was designed to experience.

    And that of my so very much loved children.

    I saw, felt that with you in your book.

    Much love to you and your family.

    Always, Hippie Peace and Love,

      Hi Diane,
      It’s nice to see you here rather than at the help and healing site–what a nice surprise. Thank you for your wonderful note! I wish you the best of everything, Diane. And if you ever want to talk, you know how to find me. You’re such a kind person. I know you will spread “blue skies” everywhere you go! — Sheri McGregor

    Dear Sheri,
    This is from Aussiemom/SandyP. Just want you to know that my entry into the Pacific International Quilt Festival being held Oct. 13/16 in Santa Clara, California, titled: ” Wall of Silence” was accepted into the juried exhibit. It will be shipped down into the US and California, where you live but thought you might like to know about this as it is based on the experiences of those parents rejected by their grown children and the estrangement we’ve experienced. From your site some time ago, the subject of the book, The Velveteen Rabbit came up and I used this as an analogy and inspiration for the lower portion of the quilt, with joyful rabbits playing amongst colourful flowers, the top portion of the quilt is heavy in colour, centred on the multiple faceless faces of those children who choose to estrange from parents and how, with a puppet below, they control the lives of parents/grandparents as though on a golden chain over which we, as parents, are helpless to control.
    Sincerely, Aussiemom
