as a family to create a simple rhyme such as:
soft, Blanket warm
from angry storm.
our love be lost.
even the smallest member of the family complete a stitch or two while he
or she concentrates on adding love, protection and comfort to the blanket.
each member of the family wrap the blanket around the next while verbalizing
a characteristic of the blanket. Like this:
You wrap your daughter and say, "This
blanket is warm enough for you." She removes it and wraps it around
her brother while saying, "This blanket is fuzzy enough for you."
He wraps his father and says, "This blanket is big enough for you."
Continue to pass it around until you run out of adjectives. This
is not a solemn blessing.
each family member suggest a simple blessing action--a moon bath, a spin
in the washer with an article of clothing from each member, a kiss at each
corner--the action doesn't matter, the participation does.
or air the blanket after it witnesses it's first emotional storm and often
cleansing and blessing ceremonies are fine as well. Smudge, sprinkle
with holy water, charge with directed energy, whatever makes your heart
