What was the icing on the cake of this sweet gift was the very thoughtful message she wrote in her card. Here is just an excerpt that makes me smile:
"...This should not be the kind of blanket you put on display, but rather one that gets used on the daily. It should be the blanket that gets pulled over your head during a scary movie. It should be the blanket that goes on road trips, to the soccer field, to the hockey rink, to the cottage on those chilly nights. It should get covered in cat hair, tear stains, coffee stains. It should be washed often, need to be mended, be patched up, be tossed around. Basically- it should be loved! It should be that hg that you need, the comfort that family and friends give from a distance. Let it remind you of the warmth and love love that surrounded you on your wedding day..."
