Cee’s Share Your World

Here are this week’s questions with my answers.

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?  The only piece of clothing I remember from my early childhood was a bathing suit.  I loved it.  It was white with gingerbread men on it and trimmed in pink.  My mother had a matching one.  I can see myself sitting on the step to the kiddie pool wearing that bathing suit.  I wish I had a picture of it. 

Regardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.  If I were able, I would like to be a race car driver.  I love to drive fast and think it would be exciting.  

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?  I would rather be the driver.  If I am a passenger I fall asleep.  🙂

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.  I had the opportunity to watch my grandchildren in their dance recital.  I was amazed at how much improved Andrew is.  It was a great day.

SYW is hosted by Cee over at Cee’s Photography.  It’s a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.  If you would like to join us, just click the link.

FOWC With Fandango — Primitive

Costume Historian

The Primitive Woman

Sitting by the fire stitching
Late at night a labor of love
She provides her families wardrobe
With tedious work that strains her eyes.

Up in the morning before sunrise
Her day begins with cooking a meal
Feeding and dressing the children
Then out the door by her husband’s side.

Working the fields
They laugh with each other.
Their lives intertwined
Never to part.

Her faith in God is taught by example
With prayer, kindness, and love.
She teaches her children reading and writing
There are no schools for them to attend.

Hard work and long days
For the family she loves.
Finding joy in the struggles
Of the life, she leads.

A primitive woman
Lives a primitive life
I’m thankful I’m a modern woman
Living a modern life.
