Patiently Waiting

February 10, 2011

This simple vintage treasure that was purchased when I was expecting our daughter over 16 years ago has stood the test of time. As I searched for a rocking chair, I knew a brand new rocking chair just wouldn’t do. I needed one with some love that had already rocked many miles just like the rocking chair my beloved Grandma had rocked me in. In those years when my daughter was a baby, I would rock to sooth and comfort her. Then as a toddler she would jump up into the chair and rock herself. Then our son came along 3 years later and it again saw daily use as I gently rocked him. Now this rocking chair doesn’t rock as much as it used to because my children do not fit comfortably in my lap to sit in this chair. Now the sofa is where we sit to snuggle. So now, it may be a little dusty and not used that often, but it is a priceless treasure that rocked my precious children so many years ago. For now it patiently waits…

Love that chair and the corner that it sits in surrounded by such lovely objects. Maybe one day you will pass it on to your daughter so that she can create her own memories of rocking and soothing a little one. :) Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Wonderful post! The chair holds a lot of great memories. I'm sure it will get more use MANY years down the road when you rock your grandchildren (notice I emphasized the word MANY)
Have a wonderful weekend.
