A Special Rug

The last few days. I have documented some of my craft phases.  I didn’t include watercolors, oil painting, knitting, or crocheting.   And another one I didn’t document is rugmaking.  I have made quite a few by crocheting long torn strips of fabric.  This one below is kind of special, though.

March 2008, my youngest son got T-boned by a truck going 65 mph.  We stood by the side of the road praying, crying, and trying to breathe as firefighters went through 2 jaws of life, cutting him out of his car.  He was medi-vacced away in a helicopter, and the next few months were a blur of pain, surgery, recovery, and therapy.

Below is remains of his Grand Am, now called the Grand Was!  The rug above is his recovery rug.  I gave myself carpal tunnel pain, working, working, working hour after hour, day after day as I took my turn in hospital vigils.  Thankfully, he has recovered with only minimal residual damage, except for the 15″ abdominal scar.  We are thankful to God for His intervention.
