It's Week Ten of the Focus on Life year-long series. Sally is inviting us to consider something "All Wrapped Up". This could be something wrapped in paper, a sandwich wrap, a blanket, or to cover or fold...wrapping up a project and so on.
The first thing that came to mind is a blanket. I love the feel of a soft plush blanket wrapping me up from head to toe. (Okay, neck on down!) But I wasn't thinking of just any blanket, but a special blanket I packed when moving overseas, to remind me of Miss P, my BFF and (now 4 year old) granddaughter.
We spent many afternoon nap-times and story hours wrapped up together in our soft blanket, especially during the Colorado winters. She's hugging kitty (below) who also joined us during our cozy afternoons.
When it was time for us to say good-bye, I wrapped Miss P close in my arms and didn't want to let her go. I gave kitty to her for safe keeping and the blanket traveled with me half way around the world, as a gentle reminder of those special moments we snuggled close, wrapped up tight with love.
As comforting as it is to have our soft cozy blanket wrapped around me, reminding me of Miss P and home, I'd much rather have my arms wrapped around her right now!!
