I was listening to morning radio in the car on the way to the V.A. with The Honey--
They mentioned that tomorrow—you could call in and talk about your favorite toy you got for Christmas as a child.
I remembered this Barbie “Country Living House” …
I remembered opening it—My mom had it wrapped in a garbage bag. It was way in the back behind the tree with a BIG RED BOW on top.
I remembered sitting in the floor and putting the furniture together with my Mom.
I remembered putting the stickers on the furniture depicting ‘place settings’ and putting the stickers on the couch and chair.
I remembered my Barbies…
Making new and improved furniture from styro-foam wrapped in oil cloth- sewing pins like upholstery tacks…with my Granny.
I remembered making a LAMP out of a wooden thread spool and a cap off a hair spray can. :)
I remembered --- that same house. at one time. was in the VERY ATTIC of this house in which I CURRENTLY AM LIVING!!!
I don’t even know if it’s still up there. Many years have passed since seeing Barbie’s “Country Living House”
That is so crazy--
Anyway—it brings me to this---
I’ve been playing around a little bit with this house.
I took a trip to the Dollar Tree recently.
And I’ve been working on a new floor, in the upstairs bedroom. Along with a few other things.
I remembered why I like playing with this little house.—because of Barbie and my MOM.
Do you have a favorite toy from when you were a child?
Maybe it wasn’t a Christmas present- maybe it was for a birthday or for no reason in particular.
Better yet—Do you know what’s in your attic?
Maybe it’s time we get up there and take a look around…
Til next time, Be Blessed!
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, [and] being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. ~ Philippians 2: 5-8
