Ever notice how some people have a natural instinct for comforting and helping others? My husband's sister, Kathy is one of those. She was on vacation with us, and one day she popped up with a little gift; one for me and one for her mom. It was a little LED flashlight on a lanyard, so you can wear it around your neck, and always have a light available. I know she heard me talking about how I always have to get up in the middle of the night, and how disoriented I get, especially if I'm not at home. I worry about tripping over things, but I hate to turn the light on and wake my husband (even though he says not to worry about it) or others in the house. Now, I have a light that's focused enough that it doesn't light up the whole room, but gets me safely to the bathroom or wherever my destination is in the middle of the night.
Now, wasn't that a thoughtful and useful gift? It sure came in handy while we were camping this weekend!
