My son and I found this beautiful quilted heart in Monahans, Tx at the Sandhills State Park on 1-14-22. We had pulled up to a picnic table and I decided to explore up the sand dune and right as I went up the dune, I saw what I thought was a kitchen wash cloth someone left behind and made its way to this dead bush. As I looked further, I discovered it was hung on the bush. I turned it over and it said I NEED A HOME I found a quilted heart. I was excited to find it. The date on it was 1-8-22. I thought it had to have been meant to be found by us because of where it was at. It was in a rather hard spot to find but we love to explore and we were glad to take it home. Thank you! Our hearts were definitely touched!!! I hope to find more in the future. #IFAQH #meantforustofind.
