This blanket was a graduation gift for Laura from her first cousins-once-removed, Joel and David (and wife Vicky) from Anadarko, Oklahoma. I forget what they wrote on the card but it's something about Indians giving a blanket as a gift of congratulations and to make you prosper in the future. Something like that. Anyway, as you can see it is beautiful. And meaningful. Uncle Bob (Joel and David's dad) had a very nice Indian art store in Anadarko for years. He and Aunt Lorene would travel a lot to get works of art to sell. This blanket will be something Laura can cherish through the years.
On a completely different note...yesterday was a good day...no terrorist attacks. We need to be grateful for that.
I remember being at church one time when the pastor asked, "How many of you are glad you're here and not in the hospital?" We all raised our hands. That, of course, reminded us to be thankful for how things were (are).
That's the way I'm feeling today...thankful there was no terrorist attack yesterday. I could worry about one hitting today, but I've decided I won't.
