Yesterday there was a retirement luncheon in my honor.
My locker partner, Anne, crocheted this amazing shawl for me.
I was overwhelmed by this gift.
It is the softest thing in the world.
She told me she used an acrylic:
Michael's Wool -like Loops N Threads.
I'm going to have to buy the store out.
Baby blankets will be amazing in this yarn. ..etc
Some of our nurses and respiratory therapists go to China to teach in a NICU there. Paula brought this knit bag......half way round the globe to me. They flew in the night before the party and came anyhow. Isn't it gorgeous? The embroidery is hand stitched.
I did not want a party but I'm glad they insisted.
It felt like closure in the best way.
I have been privileged to work beside many amazing women.
And there is snow on the rooftops and lawns this morning..
for the times they are a changing!
