This post is truly about little things – Guatemalan worry dolls. As Guatemalan legend has it, you tell one of your dolls about your worry and put it under your pillow. Overnight, the dolls work to take your worries away so you wake up without them.
Amy, my sister, got me a set of worry dolls because not only am I homesick for Guatemala, but I was going through a tough time. She felt that the worry dolls could do something for me, even though they are normally meant for children. 🙂 She was also going through a tough time, but still thought about me.
“After everything we’ve been going through, I was thinking about getting your worry dolls their own worry dolls.” Ha! Best.sister.ever.
