The first wave of hats has begun to ship

It occurs to me (woefully slow, I know) that maybe I should ask those so inclined to offer up a quiet prayer, or to Think Good Thoughts, that the many hats that have now begun to be sent out to Congress might receive a warm reception at their end points.  We’ve done and are doing our part in the cause of civility and respectful speech in the public sphere; from our hearts to our hands to God’s along the way, to, hopefully, the staffers’ and recipients’ willing ones as they open those packages.

Let them know it’s coming. Give them the happy anticipation. State our cause and our hopes upfront.

Meantime, the answer to the earlier blog question is, Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland gets the Malabrigo hat to match Parker’s, with my thanks for his work restoring the Chesapeake Bay, his hat done in the colors of the Bay.

Part of me will always belong to my home state. Whose beaches, mind you, know which end of the day the sun is supposed to come by for a visit. And with ponies! Don’t forget the ponies!

As I write the hat count is at 243.

Whew. Something I can contribute to the project. Done, but it shall also be repeated early and often!

And I’d NEVER forget the ponies. EVER.

And oh, the ponies! As a child, I read and loved the books. Nine years ago we took a trip to the east coast, and I saw how close we’d be to the ponies, so I navigated us that way. We got there on the day of the swim to the mainland! We got to walk around and see the park, the beach, all the activity. It is one of those memories of perfect days. I hold it in my heart! One day, I’d like to take my youngest there—-I was pregnant with her at the time, so she missed out.

Just like Channon, prayer is something that I can contribute.

Parker does look a bit disturbed, but grampa looks perfectly clam, er, calm.
