I wondered if any of you ladies might like this poem that I wrote to include with a zippered sweater I made for one of my grandsons?
Since Nana can't be with you
Each time you're feeling bad
When you feel sad or poorly
Or when you just feel mad
She thought she'd send a cuddle
Made out of knitting wool
So you could climb inside
And give the zip a pull
With every stitch she thought of you
And said a special prayer
So every time you wore this hug
You'd know her love was there
So next time you're down in the dumps
Put on your special sweater
With Nana's love wrapped round you
You'll soon be feeling better!
(My DIL says he wore this until it was a rag and then still kept it hung on his bedpost to put on every time he was upset!)
Maybe they should be written down and attached to every sweater we make.
Awwwww, that is so precious. Guess that means I'll have to get busy making something for my grandchildren, that way they can ea have a copy of this sweet poem.
My grandson gets upset, so when I make his jacket next I will put this poem in for him so he can always think of me being there for him. Thanks a million for this beautiful poem.
So sweet; I love it, too!!!!!!!!!
The tears are still flowing down my cheeks. May I use your poem in my step-grands Christmas gifts?
That's a great poem, thanks
I love this - such a special thing to send along with a special sweater.
That poem is fabulous!! I think you could work for a greeting card company!
thanks so much. do you mind if i change it to mom or grandma? i'm getting ready to make a few sweaters for my three kiddos and would love to put that poem in the pocket.
Love the poem...what a great idea...thanks for sharing!
Lovely poem... when I quilted for my GK I'd always tell them they were sewn with love, andif they had a bad day to wrap up in the quilt and grandma's love would surround them... not an eloquent poem....but they do remember it!
