Oh, you wonderful, wonderful women. I barely know what to say! It arrived today and it is so utterly beautiful!
I cried and cried when I opened it, but in a nice way. You have encapsulated so many of the wonderful memories I have of Mike and our life together. Lyla and I snuggled under it tonight while we were watching TV together and she said “it’s like Daddy is givin’ us a cuddle!” And it really DOES feel like that. It sounds silly because obviously if he was here we wouldn’t have it, but I so wish he could have seen it, he would have loved it so much.
What you do here is a beautiful thing. To give up your time and money for a complete stranger – it is just staggeringly generous. But please trust me when I say that it is worth it. I will treasure this blanket for the rest of my life – and Lyla will treasure it beyond that, throughout hers. It is the most beautiful and special thing I have ever owned and I am so grateful to you all for the love and kindness you have shown me.
I wish I could thank you all enough, or in person. I’m so touched. Thank you.
