Baby Blanket


This blanket appeared in the laundry after my daughter had cleaned her room.

There are memories tucked inside this blanket.

As I folded it, I was brought back eight and ten years ago, when my children were tiny babies wrapped in its folds. How is it possible that these years have passed so quickly? Surely it was only days ago that I was carrying infants home from the hospital, ready to begin our new lives as a family.

I can still feel these babies in my arms each time I hug my children, with each kiss goodnight.
