for one of my classes we were assigned to count the number of items we have more than one of. such as clothes, shoes, toys, etc...from the moment i was given this task, i knew it would be a daunting one. after counting my posessions i felt spoiled, pathetic, and yet blessed. i do need to impart of my substance. "give said the little stream, give oh, give." i will share with you my numbers. so here we go..
skirts, shorts, pants, etc: 53
jackets, coats, sweatshirts: 25
shoes: 30--the cow girl boots and the rose heels are my favorites :)
pictures on the wall: 181 (including dances and collages)
now in my defense, some of these items are very old but still in good shape. as my mother always said "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without." (that saying was hanging above my closet as a child) and the nice young lady that was helping me out today at Bare Essentials has never owned mascara from a grocery store..she spends up to $50 on a tube of mascara! That makes me feel a little better..considering my mascara is like $3
I know I am blessed and I know I have much to give.
