In my own heart, I knew how much my father had always dreaded death and his ultimate passage into unknown realms. Once this inevitable moment was upon him, it was impossible for Dad to conceal his terror any longer. I felt certain what we`d seen on my father`s face was simply a lifetime of fear at last releasing itself; though realizing this brought little solace. I, too, felt overwhelmed at this moment, imagining what the future would be like as I struggled to make peace with this final horrific scene, and somehow bring comfort to my family in the days and years ahead.
My own father was one of these lost and terrified people now, facing the most profound, unknown experience of his life. Like so many others, Dad`s natural fear of the unknown was magnified because he had so little real knowledge about where he was going or how he was supposed to get there.
It became painfully clear how ill-informed and ill-prepared our society is for the ineffable end-of-life event that will surely touch us all. In this fast-moving culture where elders are often pushed aside, viewed as burdens rather than precious reservoirs of wisdom, the ancient rituals and ceremonies that truly honor aging, and the sacred transition to the afterlife, have all but disappeared. Is it really any wonder we feel shocked, and lost, and utterly terrified when Death`s hard knuckles finally wrap upon our door?
You can personalize these blankets in a lot of ways. If you want to keep it simple, you can monogram or embroider the baby`s name on the blanket. You can also include a message if you want to. For instance, you can add a message like `You`re such a blessing`. At times, people don`t like putting a long message on the blanket. In this case, the baby`s name or a descriptive word can be used. It`s common to find blankets having a message like `Naughty Amanda` or `Pretty Jean` or `Sweet Krista`.
A duvet is a form of comforter usually filled with feathers, but can also be fiber filled. A duvet can be thicker than most blankets and can be used instead of a blanket. A duvet will usually come with a cover which can add to the cost. This cover is recommended because it can be removed and washed on a weekly basis with your bed sheets. These covers are available in many colors and designs to match the décor of your bedroom.
