It’s a cold, dreary day, here in East Texas. A good day to sit down & do this dedication I’ve been wanting to do.
I recently bought a cabinet and, when we went to pick it up, the owner seemed to be in a rush so, we just hurried and put it in the truck and off we went. The Mister & I realized this piece seemed to be a lot heavier than we had expected but, that was fine, just odd. We chalked it up to the fact the owner said the drawers didn’t come all the way out, adding weight to the whole piece, when lifting. We got it at an amazing bargain so, I wasn’t too concerned with that. However, I got a little emotional when he said his Mom had passed and he was selling a lot of her belongings.
Upon arriving home to unload, we realized the cabinet was so heavy because, IT WAS FULL OF STUFF!! Things that must have belonged to his Mom. I contacted him & he said “do whatever you want with it”. So, here I stood, someone’s belongings before me and, all I could do was sing the great, George Jones’ song (in my head) Who’s Gonna Wear Their Shoes. Especially since hers were sitting before me.
My Mom lost her battle against Breast Cancer, 26 years ago and, I have nothing of hers. So, I couldn’t just let this lady leave this world, and let her things be forgotten. I never knew her yet, she touched my heart. I know she was a God Fearing woman because, she had books she wrote in about scripture and song.
I know she had great taste in movies & games.
I hope she liked Hydrangea, since she had book markers, like this one, throughout all her pages.
Also, because, I painted them in her memory. I used Old Town paints in Cottage White, on the cabinet and, a mixture of their fabulous colors on the Hydrangea.
God Bless you Mrs. Witt. This is for you AND my Mom….I know you’re “Walking in the Light”
Hold those you love close and dear…you never know when you will have to give them back ~ Dawn
