Honoring the Past with Crochet

One of newest hobbies is crocheting.  Crochet has been part of my life for as long as I can remember.  I used to visit my Great Grandma Burgess in Florida at least once a year growing up.  I remember taking my barbies along and she and I would sit and make barbie clothes together.  She tried to teach me to crochet then and I wish with everything in me that I'd have been able to pick it up then.  So in December of last year I looked up how to crochet on YouTube and began working on learning.  I love it and it makes me feel like I am a little girl all over again. 
So I recently made my first afghan for my mom. It was a huge success and I personally loved it.  So now I am joining the Inner Hooker's Crochet Along and doing this Crochet Sampler Afghan.  I'm sooo excited!  I will be blogging as I go so that I can keep a log of my project.  I want to honor my Grandma Burgess's memory in this afghan.  Will you guys cover this project in prayer with me?
On a side note, I am so emotional lately and I know exactly why after writing this blog post.  I am planning a trip home to South Carolina next month.  It's a surprise for my Granny from my mom.  Both of my living grandfathers have been sick a lot lately and in and out of the hospital.  I feel this NEED to be there and spend as much time as possible with them.  Will you also cover them and this trip in prayer?
