Handcrafted products are often more special than those made by machines.
From cakes and pastries to clay sculptures and jewelry, creating them by hand adds uniqueness and a touch of love that elevate their quality.
That’s why many people long for homemade food, handcrafted gifts, personal letters, and personal calls amidst this fast, technologically-advanced world. We want warmth, caring efforts, intimate friendships, and genuine love. With machines, robots, and artificial intelligence now dominating our world — meddling with our lives and even stealing the jobs of millions — we long for what’s human.
And the reality is, other life forms on our planet long for the same thing we want — the warmth of love. If you’re a pet owner, you can feel it every time you come home. There’s someone who’s always waiting for you with joy and excitement — be it a dog, cat, turtle, or other animal.
Outdoors, you can sense your strong connection to nature. The trees and the living things they sustain need us — and in a more meaningful way than how many people view and need them. The less love we show these creations, the more destructive the blows we get back. But, when we sow love and balance in nature, we reap more blessings and harmony.
This grandmother is a blessing to her family, including her granddog. With abundant time on her hands, she’s taken knitting as a hobby. But hey, knitting is not that easy! It takes a lot of time and patience, a finite resource and precious virtue that is likewise scarce these days.
It’s not surprising that getting a knitted gift from grandma is something everyone looks forward to. It will always remind them of special memories long after family traditions have faded away and been replaced by modern, less-loving customs.
And guess what? Everyone’s getting a gift from grandma! She’s also knitted a sweater for their family’s beloved beagle. And it has covers for his ears, too. So thoughtful of grandma. Of course, dogs’ ears get cold as well, and she’s making sure that her granddog will be warm all over this coming winter!
