Memories.... and acceptance

I received a message from a niece long ago... and just rediscovered it in my "drafts" folder.  Better to post late than never, right? 

"Aunt Jacki.... I still have the blankets you crocheted for me when I was a baby. There are 2 of them and now my daughter uses them. It's crazy that a 30 year old blanket is still getting used."

Sometimes at estate, tag, or garage sales, I see blankets or quilts that have made and given with love but have outlived their old lives and are looking for new lives...  I rescue them and find someone to love them in their new life.

Thank you for sharing, dear niece.  It touches my heart that something I made is still giving, and receiving, love.
