As I mentioned in my previous Thankful For [T4] post – we’ve been hit with a major cold front that provided us one day of precipitation and several days of freezing weather. Lots of ice & tomorrow will be three days of cancelled school. Having five kids stuck inside for several days calls for creativity – which my wife has plenty of. So last night & today Missy has been teaching the two oldest kids to sew – both by hand & with her sewing machine. I walked into my room tonight to find a one of a kind, hand made blanket folded up neatly on my pillow. On top was a Post-It note that read: “forme Daniel to Dad!” Love it!!
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by Daniel’s generosity. I’ve said many times that I think he is the most generous & giving person in our whole family. He is a great sharer – of his toys, his time & his possessions (see also THIS POST). I find myself really challenged by how effortless his giving seems to be.
So – it’s been a while since I’ve slept with a little blankie but I will be tonight!
