Pablo is like "what's going on mom? my whole world is a changin"
Did I ever tell you that one time I got a ribbon and was named "Grand Duchess of Sparkle and Shine" yep that totally happened.
And when Austin was 4 and we drove up the coast and found this little wine cellar named after our first born and 17 years later, I still have the same bottle on my dresser that used to be my friends when she was in elementary school and her mom gave it to motorcycle man as payment for helping them move. Let me just state for the record "I HOLD ON TO THINGS" things that mean a lot to me.
Please tell me every mother saves her children's teeth in a Russian hand painted lacquer box, that her mom brought back from Russia and gave her as a gift. A very, very generous gift.
The sentimental gifts and charms I save. I cleaned out my closet. Tossed out clothes and purses, I let go of old books and shoes but I kept these special things because they help me to remember the friends who thought of me when they put them into my hands to hold
The dish of stones and hearts and worry rocks and glow star. I dusted them off and set them back on that old dresser that holds a story.
The minute you hang your shirts to dry and realize, "I must like the color blue!"
And I obviously.... "I LOVE red" So you see things are changing. I'm ridding myself of "stuff" I'm mentally preparing myself for another chapter in this life. Things change and luckily I'm good with change. It just takes me a minute to adjust but I'm always willing.
