Sometimes I see something and want to burn that vision or image in my brain forever. This is one:
Emma’s boots in the kitchen. When I look at these boots, I re-walk the millions of miles she’s traveled in them right along with her. I know exactly where that dirt came from and why it’s there. There’s a whole story surrounding those spur straps and know just where they are worn the most on the soles.
Needless to say, when I snapped this picture, I had nearly talked myself into a Mama Meltdown. I was so sentimental! I was trying to imagine what it would be like when those boots will be someplace else. I mean, she’s getting older. She’s growing up. She’s going to go off to college, I’m certain. Then? After that? Will her boots ever find rest in this kitchen again???
Geez, Lady. Get yourself together. Is that what you’re thinking? Well, you should be. Talk about borrowing trouble! How about let’s just enjoy the here and now and let tomorrow take care of itself.
