Thanks for the Hug, Mom!

When my sister and I got our of our cars in the nursing home parking lot for a Dad visit, Sis handed our my mother's coat. That was such a sweet surprise for me. My mother died 6 years ago, and my having a few special things that belonged to her brings me so much joy. I know the camel hair coat my sister gave to me has to be over 20 years old. When I tried on Mom's camel hair coat, which is soft as can be, it felt like Mom was hugging me. I swear I felt her hug when I put on her coat. I have to say the coat looks so cute with jeans and black boots. It is a perfect fit too. I will have my mom's coat dry-cleaned, and I will wear it as often as I can. I am going to go to the closet now and put Mom's coat on to get another hug from her. I have a feeling I will be putting on Mom's coat many times today. Note: No camels are harmed to make a camel hair coat. Camels shed, and those shed hairs are collected and used to make camel hair clothing items.

I understand your state of mind and emotion when you are again going to the closet to wear it once again! She must be very happy to see this from her heavenly abode dear friend @Corbin5! God bless!

What a wonderful surprise, your sister giving you your mother's camel-hair coat:) It will be such a comfort to know, who that coat belonged to! I have a shabby looking little dress, my mother use to wear. I wouldn't part with it, for anything!:(

What a lovely story and I can bet your Mom is really hugging you too. May she hug you many many times over and that you feel she is with you every time. I remember Camel Coat´s too and even though I don´t have one now they are nice and soft and warm. Heartwarming words thank you Hugs.
