Even now–the sun rises

Recently my friend Ang had to undergo surgery so he went into a hospital for the first time in his life. I gave him the pillow that Irene made for me so long ago. I am so glad I found this post as Irene has moved on to a great job as a Product Designer.


My mother-in-law’s long-time friend, Mary Tang, is a poet. She lives in Australia and recently contacted me about a custom Froo & Boo order. She sent me a poem that she wrote and wanted some of the words sewn onto my Sunshine & Grey Skies cloud pillow. After playing around with the words and the placement on the cloud, this is what we came up with:
even now--the sun rises
Mary had 2 pillows made: one to keep and one to give to her friend who is in the hospital. The words of the poem are really powerful and have such a strong message of hope. It is my hope that Mary’s friend will be comforted by the words of the poem and the softness of the pillow. This was a collaboration that truly inspired me. Mary has given me permission to share her poem on my blog:

even now

even the moon…

    A beautiful poem and collaboration! As someone whose earliest, loneliest memories involve hospital stays, I am quite certain you helped keep your friend’s clouds at bay. I hope he’s recovering quickly!
