Aunt Norie’s sewing room
Three of us old timers reminiscing the other day, remembering those tough times, really tough times, those depression days, comparing them to what’s happening now all around us.
Not that many of us around now, though. One said, “Oh I don’t know about that, there really are, you know people are living longer.”
We enjoyed going back to those days of that weekly trip to town for groceries, etc., there was no running to the store every day, some of us today maybe two or three times a day. What a waste of time not to mention gasoline, at today’s prices.
“Gotta knuckle down,” “Waste not want not,” “Plan ahead,” “tighten our belts,” all of those old sayings. Oh yes we were there but you know people care, people get closer together and, best of all, families get closer together.
So if we knuckle down, mend it fix it, don’t pitch it, mend those britches, sew on those buttons, think twice before you buy it, “do I really need it?”
Include the kids, play games with them, get to really know them, listen to their ideas, as a woman said the other day “they will soon lead our world.”
But most of all, turn your worries over to God after all this is his old world, He is still in control.
Have a Happy New Year and God Bless you all.
