Prayer Blanket

Happy Thanksgiving! There is plenty to be thankful for. Family. Friends. Health. Love. The 12 sections of this blanket represent the 12 months in a year. Everyone has ups and downs but we make it through. The days go on. There is always tomorrow. Be thankful and take time out of your day everyday to reflect on your blessings and feel grateful for them. Let compassion and kindness fill your heart!
