|Sunrise January 4, 2013 One below zero. BRRRRR|
R. loved sewing machines with all his heart. He could fix anything. I was the lucky recipient of his stash of parts, sewing machine repair manuals, needles and other sewing machine related items. We were so lucky to spend the day with his daughter, B., a delightful young woman who happens to love baseball. She worked tirelessly with us to load and pack the lot of parts. D., B.'s mom, is a generous, loving, compassionate woman who, understandably, stayed in the nice warm house and baked cookies. They claim to like road trips. Since B. loves baseball, we hope that they come to visit. We have the room! Oh and did I mention that they like dogs?
Admittedly as we unloaded the truck this morning I wondered "What have I done?"
Anyone else would have thrown it away. R. kept it because it was meaningful. I am so glad that he did. B. is keeping it.
"That is so my Dad."
