I recently came across baby blankets my mother-in-law had made for my sons when they were babies. I also have a small quilt and a couple of wall hangings that I made for the boys when they were born and am holding onto those for grandchildren of my own.
I was thinking that I don't really have any toys or equipment left from the days of babyhood, having given it all away for someone else to use. But what we did hold onto were the handmade items.
How wonderful to be able to pass these things down to a new generation. They have held up through the years of use and being packed away and can now be used by new young families.
Next time you think about making a handmade gift for an expected little one, I hope you will do it. Future generations will thank you!
