One More Day
September 2, 2011

My coat and I live comfortably together.  It has assumed all my wrinkles, does not hurt me anywhere, has molded itself on my deformities, and is complacent to all my movements.  I only feel its presence because it keeps me warm.
—  Victor Hugo

The anticipation of school beginning each fall is fueled by youngsters’ love of newness —  new clothes, new shoes, new books, new teachers.  We still enjoy newness, but we also find comfort in what is old and reliable.  No afghan comforts quite as well as the one that was knitted with loving hands many years ago.  We may have a favorite mug or chair.  Over years we have developed trusting and dependable relationships.  While we remain open to change, we also feel comfortable with what is old and familiar.

I’m glad I can find comfort in the old and familiar, and excitement in the new and unfamiliar.
