Have you ever thought about.....

the tales that antique items could tale?
I am an antique freak and here lately as I acquire items to sale I have begun to wonder say for instance of the lovely vintage aprons what wonderful stories might it have like, the night a heart was broken and she wiped away the tears, or the surprise birthday party that she assisted in the baking. All the wonderful things she could tell if only we could have the ears to listen. The older I get I stop and think of times my kids have told me something only for me to be so busy not to remember what they even said. Why is it we have gotten so busy we don't take the time to listen?
When we lay down at night or get up each morning and say our prayers are we busy spitting out our wants and never stop to listen what God wants....I know I am guilty. I think from know on I will try and be more like an apron quiet with the all listing ears to hear the praise and sweet soft voice of my father. After all he is the reason this vintage gal is still here. Blessings, Karen
