Moment from My Day

The other day I was organizing the storage closet at my moms where I keep all the clearance deals I've found that the kids haven't grown into.  

I found a stocking there.  

When I had my eldest, I bought wool, knitted Christmas stockings- the old fashion type.  After I married my husband and added to our family, stockings that matched were harder to find than a great pair of jeans!  One day when I was prego with Little Miss, my mom called me to ask if I wanted her to pick up a matching stocking that she'd run across.  I had her get 2- "just in case."  

I stood staring at this soft, cream and red knitted stocking thinking what a shame it would be to never get to sew a name across the top of it.
