Thank You Letter

A few months ago, I was contacted through my etsy shop by a group that gathers expectant moms of deployed soldiers together and holds a huge baby shower for them. They contact various sellers and organizations to ask if they'd be willing to donate items. I thought it was a good opportunity to get my name and baby items out there and I also thought it was a great cause. A way of saying "thank you" to the soldiers who are out there protecting our freedoms. So, I decided to donate some wrist rattles and teething toys.

Last week, I received a letter from one of the moms thanking me, even though she couldn't use the wrist rattle as she was having a boy and the one she received was for a girl. She went on to say that she passed the rattle onto a friend who was having a girl. I was so touched that this wonderful lady (can she be called anything but) had taken the time to hand write me a letter thanking me for something she couldn't really use for herself.

So, I decided that I would make her something, for her baby boy, that she could use just to show my appreciation at the time she took to write and send me that letter. I made a burp cloth/bib set for her. I chose one of the cutest boy fabrics I had and I plan to send it to her tomorrow. It's the least I can do.
