Love is in the Laundry Room

love-is-in-the-laundry-room

Standing in the laundry room, I quietly hummed myself as I sorted out the piles of dirty belongings preparing them for the wash. Emptying pockets removing toys, crayons, rocks, and money I smiled at each piece that was forgotten in the pocket. Each item was cherished by the owner which made me smile at some of the oddities found within their pockets. My mother use to say that love is in the laundry room and I often wrinkled my nose looking at her and the daunting chore that never seems to end. It wasn’t until I had to empty the pockets and see the treasures my children keep. Love is in the laundry room waiting to be reclaimed by those who hold on to it.

Small Country House

Small Country House1

Nestled in the country side, stood tall a little house; filled with great character and many stories to tell. Every day around the same time, the neighbours would see a flock of crows flying overhead singling that the home owner was cooking and putting the refuse outside in their garden. Not one of the neighbours could tell you much about the home owner, just a few snippets of information was really known. The small house had been there for as long as anyone could tell, and they all said the same thing that it could use some love and improvements but no one was brave enough to suggest this. The home owner carried out the same routines, tending to their small garden and doing chores around the home. No one could tell if they ever left the property, but they knew once a week a small car would arrive at the same time and during these little visits, you could hear laughter and the tiny voices of children would drift through the wind.

Cozy Cottage

Cozy Cottage1

Alone in her tiny home the cottage owner sits and drinks her tea. While many would question her station in life, she cannot be more content. She spends her days busy with her work and puttering around the little cottage. She listens to the chatter of her fur babies as they meander in and out of the house seeking their own adventures. Her nights are filled with quiet solitude as she prepares a meal or two and then sets to working once more on the next days tasks. Looking around the cottage one can tell the home is filled with love event though it is may be small. Alone she sits drinking her tea.

Strange Things Happen

I have learned that strange things happen when you least expect them. I had never once expected to form a close bond with people I have never met outside of Second Life. These people have become a part of me in RL so much so that when they hurt I hurt for them and long to take away their pain, when they are happy I share in their joy. At the same time I never expected that Second Life would enable me to virtually see those who have been in my life forever but cannot visit with in RL because of where they now live. Strange and wonderful things happen I have learned when you least expect it.
