remember.....

remember when we hung our clothes on the line ............ the beautiful sunshiney day with all the magnificent rays to zap the moisture out of the fresh hung load of sheets ... towels .....diapers ....................................... i remember one day in particular ...... my clothespins were in a basket very similar to this one .......Megan, being two yrs old at the time, had been playing with the pins beside me ............. suddenly i realized she was no longer near ......the search around the house began ................. by the time i spotted her she was running down the middle of our road (at that time maybe 4-5 cars a day) ....... i started to run after her .... the closer i got, the faster she ran ......... giggling all the way, with clothespins flying one by one out of the basket ........................................ needless to say i have never been so frightened in my life ....................... how could i scold a two yr old for the most joyous thing she had discovered ..... a basket of clothespins ..... and ............... freedom !
................................................... i am blessed !

Sweet Story ... I too remember the fright of chasing a child who ran faster and faster away from me .. I remember the feeling of laughing and crying at the same time.
And I too am a New Pinterest Nut, like I needed anything more to keep me connected
to this keyboard. lol
Have a Great Week-End !!
