today was costume laundry day.
today at the laundromat I met a really sweet lady.
she had two sons...both under 4.
they each had two different shoes on.
the older one had glasses and said he was allergic to bad guys.
and then they had a towel "sword fight."
as I folded the "fiddler on the roof" costumes...I realized it was all over.
there was a big pile of clothes.
each piece represented the person who wore it.
and I thought about how much each person meant to me.
the memories and laughs we shared.
and, while I knew that I had just finished a big chapter in my life, I realized that I simply can't wait for the next one to begin.
