We are in the midst of a purge of sorts. I'm surprised at how easily I can let go of some things and not others. We didn't do very well with the books. I'm afraid that most will be making the move with us. Today when I got home from work, Court came running over to me before I could even step.out.of.the.car. He was so excited about some old books he had just found...ones that he hadn't seen in a while...he was literally jumping up and down. He also made sure to tell me not to sell any of the paint brushes because he would need the little ones to make outlines - go figure.
This past weekend I hung my sheets outside for the last time to dry. I will make room at the new place for the clothespins that belonged to Kevin's grandmother as I think of her each time I pick one up. That seems to be the trend of our letting go. We are keeping only those things that are useful or loved. Those clothespins are both.
