The second and final time it left me gets us to the tragic ending to this story. On Monday I packaged up the quilt along with my sheets as we were moving to a different house. I had to leave it in the care of my husband and the movers to get it to the new house as I had to watch my two girls. Side note: Moving with small children is awful especially one that is just walking and gets into everything. Anywho back to the tragic story of the quilt. When the movers came to the new house and we unpacked everything and waved goodbye to the movers we were exhausted! The move took all day 5am - 7pm and all we wanted to do was get the beds made so that we could go to sleep. We got all the bags of bedding upstairs and I started making the girls beds. Then I moved on to my bed and as I was unpacking I found out that I only had the shams and pillows for the bed. The quilt and sheets had gone missing! Where could they be??? We called the movers and they said nothing was left in the truck, then we went back to the house to see if it was left there, nope nothing was left. The ending to this story is a mystery. It could have been stolen as we were all in the house and not watching the truck and someone just happened to steal the bag with my quilt in it or somehow it was thrown away even though my husband and the movers both swear nothing was thrown away.
May I be able to stop being sad and depressed about it all and thinking of all the things I should have done and said to the quilt before I left it. I need to stop beating myself up with the "I should have taken care of it myself then this would have never happened" crap and move on. I know this but still.....it is hard.
The Lotus Squared quilt was well loved for the 2 months that we had it on our bed. It kept us warm and cozy this winter for the small time that it was with us. May it Rest in Peace where ever it is.
