Lost But Found
Years ago when the children were young I enjoyed doing crewel embroidery and made one of these little horses each year to go on our Christmas tree. As you can see (photo below), they are dated; the first one is dated 1979.
I have six children and only finished three horses. Life got too busy, so I put the needlework away and went on to more important matters.
This Christmas as I took these three precious little horses out of their boxes and placed them on the tree, I wished I had continued to make six of them to hand down to each of my children as keepsakes.
Last night, a vague memory came to me as I was about to drift off to sleep. I got up from bed, went to my closet and found a box that had not been opened for years. Inside, I found two little crewel horse kits that were completely untouched! Well, that would make five when the two were completed. I needed one more. Today, I found one on the Internet and now I'll be able to complete the set.
I have been excited all day about finding the tiny treasures in my closet and the sixth one on the web. This year, God willing, I will finish my children's keepsakes
