I have two daughters, ages 21 and 19. My husband...
Created By: Dani Flowers

I have two daughters, ages 21 and 19. My husband made it possible for me to be at home through most of their young lives. I enjoyed picking them up from school every day for over fifteen years. I would always try to park in the same place so they could easily find me after school. I would go early to get my parking space before other parents arrived. Instead of sitting there staring off into space, I would take someting to knit. First I would just make baby blankets--easy to carry around. Then I started modifying the patterns and making lap blankets to give to the elderly in our local nursing homes. We are members of a church in our community that is very active with Habitat for Humanity and I started giving my blankets to the director to give each new home owner when they received the keys. When my children grew up enough to drive I decided it was time for me to rejoin the work force. My knitting slowed and I was not able to keep up with each new home that was built. Some women who were volunteering their time at the Habitat office began knitting the blankets. Although my blankets were given anonymously, I was very proud to find out that I had inspired these women and still try to put together a couple each year to give. As the numbers of my family members and friends have grown, it has become traditional for me to give each at least one blanket and with each one I pray for their good health and prosperity. Although, I have always given blankets, many have started requesting shawls and some just use the blankets that way. I never thought my knitting would become so important to so many and have never thought to take pictures of the blankets and those who have received them. Until recently, I didn't even know that a prayer ministry existed along this line. God seems to have made me a member of this ministry without my knowledge. I praise him for my abilities and pray he will allow me to continue knitting the rest of my life.
