Life seems to get more elaborate everyday, our houses are bigger, stores are huge, parties and weddings are bigger and many gifts are big.
My mom made this little book for son Bobby when he was 1-2 years old. This was before fancy scrap book supplies. It is just 3 large index cards folded in half and stapled together. She decorated it with stickers and cut out photos from my dad's farm magazines.
But some of the most meaningful gifts I've ever received are small, made with love gifts.
This cross stitch book mark - I've kept it in my Bible since 1987. Aunt Evelyn stitched patchwork hearts on one side and our names on the other. Isn't it so sweet?
It was one of Bobby's favorite possessions and was looked at and read so many times, I am not sure how it is still intact.
Gift giving season is starting- Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, weddings, spring birthdays and spring babies- I think heart-felt little gifts can be wonderful.
Do you have any tiny love-filled gifts like mine?
