Just what is Blankets of Blessings? Recently, the nurses in Palliative Care at ECM hospital told one of our volunteers that as patients face the end of their lives; they take special comfort in having a soft blanket to wrap themselves up. That is all that the Magnolia family needed to hear! Soon we were working together to personalize blankets much like the one above. The blankets are embroidered with a message and an edge is hand crocheted. Our volunteers believe that spending time making the blankets special with a little extra touch of love is well worth it. We find ourselves praying for those who will soon be touched by this small effort and for their families who are facing losing the one they love. Blessings from Magnolia!
