I was comforted recently when my pastor was talking about the amount of time a musician puts into scales. It's technical work, not impressive or even something that can be a final product in and of itself. But when we are really into something, we will put our heart into practicing it until we improve. It was a good reminder that it's not about producing a masterpiece every time.
Onto the gift! Our lovely friend C. celebrated her birthday a few days after her son was born, and we gave her some Smartwool socks to cozy up in as a new mom at home.
I wrapped them in the homemade gift bag shown above and paired the gift with a card.
We were running off to the airport that morning and ended up dropping these in a little paper bag to hang on their doorknob! How lucky to be friends and neighbors.
