The Blanket

The blanket is itchy and scratchy as it is made of wool. It’s not large enough to keep my whole body warm so I have to choose between feet or arms. This blanket seems more like an inconvenience than anything. But, it’s not. And I will keep this blanket forever.

This blanket has been in my family since my mom worked for Montgomery Wards in the mid 1970’s. I remember it all through my growing up years. It was either draped over the back of the couch or my grandfather’s old rocking chair. This blanket represents my family. Each one of them found comfort and warmth beneath it.

I received this blanket after my mom passed. And I will continue to treasure it with all my heart. I’m glad it found its way to my home. ♥️

  1. This is so sweet ❤ Montgomery Wards, I haven't heard this store name in a long time. Are they still around? I am sorry about your mom, but I am happy you have this blanket that even though it can't cover your whole body, it gives you wonderful memories and comfort and love all over! :)Jen
