Dau#2 told me the last post was too deep! So here goes with something a bit different.
We grow great by dreams ... Some of us let these great dreams die,
but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days
till they [flourish]; bring them to the sunshine and light,
which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
Now on to the sock dissertation! This morning I put on this pair of socks and noticed the date inscribed on them. It was New Year 2000-can you believe I have a pair of socks for that long, that have actually been in a pair! They actually look pretty new. No holes, even white as when they were purchased. The sparkly things still sparkle!
I know both daughters have worn them at one time or another!
They are actually millennium socks, I can even remember purchasing them, thought it would be funny to have socks during that millennium scare! Ya know K-2!
I can think of things these socks have seen and weathered through with me.
The sale, move from the house and the no sale and return to the house. The final move out of the house. Living with dau#2 for about a yr & 1/2.
Taking a 4 year course in Spirituality & graduating!
The retirement from a nursing career, and the return to that.
Trips to Spain, Iceland, Sweden, Colorado, and of course Florida.
Seeing my nieces & nephews have children of their own! I now have 9 great nieces & nephews in total-one cuter than the next!
Weathering Illnesses & surgeries of my own-Lyme disease, MRSA,2 surgeries-one of which I thought I might die from.
Two new vehicles & a motorcycle. And of course the next page - moving to Florida.
But most of all these socks have seen the wonderful family & friends I have and how they show me that in so many wonderful ways!
