Blanket Love

A few weeks ago we moved our oldest son into his dorm room and life is so much different with him living away from home.  We are thankful he is but a short drive away and seeing him on Sundays is a blessing.  To receive his call or text mid-week makes my mommy heart skip a beat.  Really.  The sound of his voice is music to my ears.  When he asked if I could make a fleece blanket to go on their futon I said certainly.  A few days later he asked, is it done yet?  He had gotten sick and wanted to curl up under it while taking a nap.  So, I got right to work.  It will go nicely with the big throw pillows I sewed the week before for him.  Handmade mommy goodness right there in his dorm room. 

On Saturday we will be celebrating my 3rd oldest's birthday.  He turns 12!!  He is growing up just way too fast!  What will you being doing this long weekend?

Oh Kathy! I forgot your oldest was in college!! Oh goodness. You win with time going by the fastest. I bet you are really feeling that way now. How sweet that he wanted a blanket from mom for some comfort. :)
Here's to a new season of mothering for both of us. I will pray for your grown son and his new season of life
Hugs to you!

You are a super mommy! That is so sweet how eager he is to have a touch of love from home. I love it when my momma makes a sweet something for me, too. Something to treasure for sure!

I agree, you are Super Mom. My hat is off to you my dear! I know he treasures the blanket and pillows from your Momma heart.

Love and Hugs.
