Here is a wonderful tradition that she has created. I felt it so worthy of my attention. She encourages:
"On the day before Thanksgiving, ... pause in the preparation of our own meal, wrap a loaf of bread in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on...an apron, of course!, and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone in need of spiritual or physical sustenance. No matter which way you turn out of your own front door, someone who is deserving of a hug is very close by."
Wednesday will be a busy day for us as we prepare to for the long drive to my parents to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. But I already have someone in mind for my special package and know I can make the time to hopefully shine a little light into someone's day.
If her story has tugged at your heartstrings, you can read more about it on her web-site, Apron Memories.
Here is a little apron history that my friend, Julie, shared with me. I thought it so lovely and hope you will too.
furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.
Don't forget to check my sidebar for lots of wonderful new giveaways. Seems everyone is sharing this time of year. I hope to host a Country Farmhouse Giveaway on December 1st, too!
Wishing you joy,
