Sometimes it is nice to do something just because. I got a call from my husband about a guy he is in school with who’s wife had 30 week preemie twin boys. He asked if I’d make them a couple of preemie hats. The boys were born very small and I know how hard it can be to find tiny little clothes.
I told the husband that I’d look into making a pair of hats for them. I had a nice blue cashmere sweater that just screamed “make me into hats for these special little boys.” Without taking any pictures, I sent them out a week ago and I sent a little note with the hats basically saying that I knew she didn’t know who I was, but that our husbands were at school together and we wanted to do something for her boys. I got a call from the husband today… They arrived. She was so overjoyed by this unexpected package that it brought tears to her eyes. And now thinking about it… I’m getting weepy eyed.
The twins are doing great and are off oxygen, but still have a long way to go. I’m just glad I could do something for someone I don’t know that made them so happy.
I hadn’t planned on writing a post about this, but I’m just so touched by the families appreciation for something so small.
