Today I Thankful for the Clothes I have to wear. Covering oneself was just a blessing with hand me downs I wore to school growing up. Being the last of 10 kids I had it better than my sibblings. Mom sewed their clothes from feed sacks or any material she could get her hands on. She was working full time when I was in school and afforded to have some of mine made by a neighbor. She bought one time a year to start school. A new pair of boots every year for the snow days for the long walk to school.
In high school, I had only a very few dresses to start. Dresses were the code. I had it better than some but some had better than me. As a teenager I began to save money to buy clothes and shoes. I worked in our family grocery store at 50 cents an hour and did chores all summer to earn 10.00 a week. I would head to the local GC Murphy store to buy clothes on the weekend.
Then the family came along and the children were more important than me. I would see that they had new things regularly. Stretching the budget as far as it would go.
Now, I am blessed to be able to buy what I need and most of my wants. Clothes are no longer an issue.
I have come a long way and learned the value of the dollar and how to save to get the things I want.
