I had just finished making a blanket that afternoon while waiting for my mom's surgery to end. I went over and asked the parents if I could give the little girl the blanket. They said yes and the little girl immediately reached out for it, smiled, and calmed down. When we left the waiting room she was all snuggled up in her blanket. That is what it is all about. A simple act of being kind to others.
We were called back into ICU and I didn't see the people again. I hope the little girl is comforted when she holds her blanket. It was a nice soft one with bright colors and dogs on it. I think she liked it. That was the happy part of the day.
The sad part was that my beloved, darling, kind, loving, and generous mother passed away. I will cherish her and miss her for the rest of my life. I love you mama.
