Last weekend I got something very special in the Pod drop. At least it's very special to me. I got a blanket
Yes, that is actually a picture of me. I also got some holos from home including some of Ben as a newborn which I appreciated since I wasn't there when he was born. Well I was
and I'm in the holos which is strange since I'm also here but regardless, back to the blanket.
When I was a kid, Aunt Beru used to let me play with it. She told me that when I came to live with them, that was wrapped around me and someday she'd give it to me so that I could wrap my own children in it. I wasn't really that interested in that part at the time because I was probably around seven and what seven year old boy wants to think about being a father? I forgot about it when I got older even though it was still there but it never really hit me that it was anything special. Not until I was older and I knew that I'd never see it again because it was destroyed along with everything else when the Empire burned my aunt and uncle's home.
The so called Pod God proved me wrong though. It showed up along with some other things and I was happy to see it. It's the only thing I have of my birth mother's, she touched it and held me in it even though I don't remember, even if she barely got the chance to hold Leia and me before she died. Now I can share it with Ben. Like me, he has no clue what it means but someday he will. Someday he'll have a little piece of my history to pass on to his children. I'm glad that I have the chance to give it to him.
