It is finished.
And Guy loves it.
The first thing that Guy said after I gave Guy his new Blankie this morning was thank you and I love you so much!! Then after we christened Blankie with an inaugural snuggle Guy said, "I'm going to go downstairs and play with Blankie. And we're going to do all the things that Blankie likes to do...like maybe play soldiers...and Blankie can be the monster."
There were also horsey rides...
And games of chase...Wow, the magic really is back.
We are all so happy and relieved.
It took me 60 hours of knitting to replace Blankie.
It took the coordination of my hands and all of the love in my heart to finish.
It provided me priceless opportunities to teach my children what is right and what is good and what is important and how to forgive and to always think of others and how important it is to say "I am sorry," even when it hurts, because that is what Jesus asks of us.
We did it, and I'm glad we did.
I am thankful to receive through this experience the education that I cam here to acquire.
It makes me so happy to see Guy and Blankie back together again.
And now, there is only peace and wisdom and gratitude to my Heavenly Father and to our Savior Jesus Christ for now I understand more personally the burden that he carries for us.
The burden that he has helped me to bear.
I am sure that some day I'm going to want to make this pattern for my grandkids,
So, here is the pattern (although by now I've got it memorized.)
