The day my husband flew back to Iraq (a week and a half ago), I did a little therapeutic shopping. One of these purchases was placed to Spunky Eclectic (of course). When I got the package in the mail later on that week, included with my little stash addition was a small blue packet. I opened it up to find a precious little bell-topped hat and sock set for Billy.
In that first week of being alone and at times overwhelmed with all of the emotion loneliness brings, it was incredibly touching to receive these tiny garments hand stitched for my baby.
It brought tears to my eyes, and a smile to my face for the rest of the day. Thank you Amy for the "hug" from Maine.
