The Gift

Distance need not be a hindrance to the joy and support that a family member can provide.

My cousin, (knitter, quilter, spinner and now weaver), visited with me and Mom in January. It was a wonderful visit. And during that time she shared her new passion with us - weaving! And mom was enthralled by the process.

And yesterday Mom received a gift of joy - oh, yes, she also received a beautifully handwoven scarf and a lovely note from her niece, my dear cousin.

A picture is worth a thousand words. I give you four.

She couldn't imagine what her niece would send her.

She begins to understand.


She didn't take it off all night.

Thank you my dear, dear cousin.
You gave joy to more than one person that night!!


  1. That's what it's all about....That's why we do what we do.

  2. You are more than welcome. I felt joyful the whole time I was weaving this for her in anticipation of her surprise and delight!

  3. Beautiful picture, beautiful scarf, beautiful act of kindness!


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
