This week’s photo challenge with the Daily Post is called “Treasure.”
Patrick’s Grandmother and I first bonded over two things (other than the love of her grandson). Music, then knitting. I think we would have been great friends if we were from the same era. Either way, we got along famously.
She decided that for our wedding, she would knit us a blanket. It would be in our wedding colours. So, she did. Now, the catch is that she, by the time of our wedding wasn’t very mobile, but she wanted to surprise me moreso than Patrick with the blanket, so if I came over, she would make him or anyone else nearby hide it, so I wouldn’t ask about her latest project. I remember how excited I was when she gave it to us.
Since that time, it has set up home on the back of our couch. It keeps us warm on colder nights, it protects the couch from Jeter fur when he sits beside us.
She died before we were married a year, but her memory lives on. Our plan is to use this blanket to cover up our first baby when we take him or her home from the hospital, so it is kind of like she is there too.
