When I was a young girl my momma bought me this sweet little rocking chair that I kept for years. Dark wood, a cherry blossom seat cushion daintily tied to the seat of the chair...It was my sweet little chair that I read Charlotte's Web, Remember Me, Baby-sitter's Club, Little Women, and many other childhood favorites in.
When I went off to college the chair stayed and then when my youngest sister went to college, she took the chair. Fast forward a couple of years...She graduated, married, moved to South Korea to teach with her husband, moved back and now the two of them are trying to make a life of the things they've collected over the years. She texted me and asked if she could let go of my darling little rocker.
I'm okay with letting it go, but I wanted to pay homage to my little friend. I'm a sentimental sap. I'm anti-hoarder and then some...constantly chucking things and clearing space, but that doesn't stop me from collecting little things here and there...a porcelain doll my great grandmother left me..a green blanket my mother received when she was a little girl...a hope chest.
Just wanted to pay respect to the little reading chair that I know will make some little girl very happy. I just know it.
