I am thankful for soft flannel sheets! I grew up with flannel sheets on the bed during those long South Dakota winters, and nothing feels warmer and nicer on cold winter nights! A few years ago my son gave us a set of really good flannel sheets, the kind that never pill-up when they are washed. They are so soft and cuddly that I really hate to get out of bed in the mornings, and I'm sad when Spring comes and it's time to exchange them for cotton sheets. It's funny how things that make us smile are often tied up with childhood memories.
