Washcloths, all knitted with love, by my beautiful boy's Grandma. She's been recuperating from a heart operation and in so doing has had to be much less of a whirlwind than she normally is. Instead, she's been knitting up a storm!
These handmade, colourful cloths are for our teachers' gifts this year. I'm sure our boy will pick different colours to reflect each teacher's favourite and that he will choose the scent of the soap just as carefully for each recipient. To this, he'll add one of his own hand-rolled beeswax candles that smell of delicious honey. He will wrap each gift with painted brown paper, tie it with ribbon from my stash and add one of his own hand-drawn tags.
He will give each teacher her gift quietly, as he has always done, but there will be that little smile as his gifts are acknowledged and he experiences one of life's great joys...giving.
