The Spirit of Gifting-A Touching Story
Every Christmas I try to make a special handmade gift for my boys. See photo at left for last year’s Minecraft Creepers. Earlier today I purchased a pattern to make this year’s surprise and I’ll start working on it tonight after they go to bed. We are fortunate enough where these handmade gifts are special treats for our kids and although they receive plenty of store-bought gifts, they always really enjoy the crocheted creation they know will arrive. A few minutes ago I read a very touching story of a family who hit hard times and the store-bought gifts weren’t so easy to get. Crochet helped this family bring Christmas surprises to a couple sweet children. The sweetest gift though, was the gift from the son.
