The last days of September are upon us.
I don't know about you but I am always a little sad
To see September end.
I think it is a beautiful month.
There are only 30 days to enjoy the blue sky, the vibrant colors
And the settling of the Fall season.
I begin to to turn my thoughts and my reflections to the indoors.
I Enjoy the pleasures of my peaceful home, and hearth.
Though there is no "hearth" within my home, I believe the warmth
Comes from the pleasantries and sturdiness of Home.
This little sewing drawer belonged to my Grandma Dot
It reminds me of her. . It reminds me of my home life with her.
She was a gentle soul. She was the steady force in my young life.
Isn't it amazing how something so small and seemingly insignificant,
Such as a sewing drawer, can evoke such strong emotional memories
Just like September Grandma Dot's season with me was short.
Ah, but her gentle soul and loving spirit
Continues to be a steady force for me.
Front and Center.
I decorate with "things" that are special to me. . they
Bring me memories and pleasure.
Some folks think they are worthless clutter. . .Bah!
For me they decorate my home with love and happiness
Memories and stories.
So. . as the month of September comes to its close.
I will begin decorating for the coming the months.
And I will decorate with things that I have had for a long time.
So. . .do you decorate with thing that you cherish and brings back
Memories of a special person or time?
Hugs to all
