The second gift I got was from my Granny...who passed away over 7 years ago.
Years and years ago, when I knew that Granny was getting old and wouldn't be around to see my children come into our family, I wanted one thing. A baby blanket...she made ALL her great grand-babies blankets. So, I asked my mom, if she would ask her to start making me one.
So, she started this sweet little blanket. Her hands were getting old and she couldn't finish it. She finished most of it, but mom had to finish it up. There is a little bow that shows the line between Granny's work and mom's. I knew it was coming, because mom tried to give it to me months ago. "NO! That is for my shower. I want to open it like a gift." I was asking for the tears, but I wanted to open Issa's blanket just like all my cousins had done before me. So, I did, shared the story...and we all cried!!
So, I will let him. I may cry over spilled mild when it gets dirty, but hopefully I will remember this!
It was made for him!
