This is My Kind of Woman!

One feel good story about a rescue following the Italian earthquake.

………Another of those rescued today was Maria D’Antuono, 98, who said that she had spent 30 hours knitting as she waited to be freed from her ruined home.

“I worked, I knitted,” said Mrs D’Antuono, from the village of Tempera, close to L’Aquila. The redoubtable nonagenarian told rescuers that she was in good health when she was found this morning, according to Sky TG24. (find the entire article here.)

May I still be knitting (and up to it for thirty hours!) when I’m 98!

Thanks be to God for her safe rescue! May there be many, many more. Eternal rest grant unto all those who died in this earthquake.

thanks, Cathy!
