An amazing gift

While my mom and dad were here. My mom told me to go and sit down. She had something to give to me. She presented me with this beautifully knitted blue blanket.

I absolutely love homemade things like this so I was immediately excited. "Did you make this?" I asked.

My mom replied with, "I didn't make it, Your grandma Prescott made it."


My eyes well up with tears. My grandma Prescott has passed away 8 years ago. I still miss her all the time. She was an amazing grandma. I love her very much. I still think about her all the time and hope she knows how much I love her. Her death was a shock to us. I never got to say goodbye.

My mom said that before she died she knitted these blankets. She wanted to give each of us a blanket for are first born child. When she died my mom got a blue and a white one. When she found out I was having a boy she was so happy to give me the blue one.

My grandma always made us these wonderful bedspread quilts. I absolutely loved these blankets. I still remember the one she gave me that was all pastel colored blocks. I LOVED that blanket. Now Max gets his own special blanket. This really means a lot to me! I love you grandma. Thanks mom for saving this special blanket for me and for Max. I'll be sure to tell him what a special grandma I had and what a special grandma he has.

The blanket actually is blue with white pearl shimmers in it. You can't see the speckle of white in the picture. It really is a beautiful blanket.

Me and my grandma
