The package arrived in July, maybe August. I don’t remember. The days after our son died were filled with sadness and I didn’t really pay attention to dates other than to mark off one week, two weeks, a month since I delivered a stillborn child.
But at some point this summer, it arrived. A lovely teal scarf from a friend from Texas who I’ve only met online. It was beautiful, in a color that I loved, knit with care.
That wasn’t what it was supposed to be.
It was made from yarn that had been chosen to knit a blanket for our son.
I’m writing today over at A Deeper Story. I’d love for you to join me there.
