Thank You for the Healing Blanket!

Nettie (blogger NASRENE) - who's been following Walter's blog, but who we've never even met - had her grandmother knit Walter a blanket! This blanket is amazing. Not only is it hand-knit with love, it's from a special line of blankets made just for people who need healing. Nasrene's grandmother has made them for cancer patients and other people who are trying to recover from something. When we unfolded it from the tissue paper, even though it was heavy and thick it felt cool and soothing, a healing blanket for sure! Such fun colors and AMAZING stitch work. Walter loves the different textures and the fact it was made in big-boy blue! I have never seen a blanket like it, and when I put it in Walters pen (SCAMPERLAND!) he immediately curled up on it and fell asleep. I mean like zonked out. Peaceful and snoring, which is the most heavenly sound to me, I can hear his bones healing when he does this.

I was so touched by this gift, I told Walter how important his recovery is, how so many people love him and are watching out for him. I told him there are more good things in this world than bad, more Miracles than we can count, and that there are angels all around us, disguised as friends and neighbors.

thank you for this priceless gift. we will treasure it always.

also to Kent Stemen, CONGRATULATIONS on adopting pug #3 - BUSTER!!!!!!!! We are so thrilled, and this experience has made me want to get another pug for sure. My heart is twice as big now!
