Gift of Gab

This morning's quote speaks very loudly to me. I have been at home for a week with my daughter. Sick of being sick are very familiar words. People have always put together care packages, but it is usually for the one who is sick. I was thinking that a care package would be a great gift for a parent who is at home with a sick child. Take it from me, it is almost impossible to get out of the house and pick up the things you need. Put this quote on the tag and fill a tote with all the get well essentials.........several cans of chicken noodle soup, crackers, several boxes of tissues (these run out quickly), oranges, ginger ale, and I would even throw in something just for mom. Several magazines or even a great book that you highly recommend along with some flowers would be a very nice touch.

our take everywhere, hold everything tote available here

I second all of your thoughts on being at home with a sick little one. We had three weeks of it back to back in early October. Even though I feel privileged to care for our tots, I was stuck inside so much that I thought I was going to lose my mind!!!

I love your idea here. So creative + caring.

What a wonderful quote. I had never heard that one before.
