Warmth Just an Amenity

“Get ready, here it comes, warm spaghetti!”

Big blue eyes the color of the sea open wide in anticipation of the sight of me entering the room to continue our game.

Years later as those big blue eyes look at me with comfort and anticipation as I enter the room.

The feeling of warmth is desired, the love that is brought with the warmth is indescribable.

I am reminded of these moments upon being introduced to someone’s choice of conservation of energy {go green} efforts.

I appreciate the effort, but I choose to forego their method of conservation and instead recycle aluminum cans or plastic water bottles.

You may ask what? This home that I visited did not have a clothes dryer. She explained that as a family, she and her four daughters had choose to not have one to eliminate the urge to use it.  They were content in their decision.

I have so many happy memories and I continue to experience happy moments from the simple {common to most} clothes dryer.

As a little boy Hampton loved for me to dump the warm towels or clothes on him. Yes, we called it “warm spaghetti”. He would sit there in the clothes as I folded them and the warmth of the clothes faded.

As Hampton has gotten older, we no longer do the “warm spaghetti” game but, I sometimes take a few warm towels and place under his covers as he lies in bed. Or I may warm him a towel before he gets out of the shower.

Is a clothes dryer a must? No. Is it an amenity that we desire? Yes.

The warmth of this appliance generates only a fraction of the warmth that feels my heart when that precious boy of mine smiles at me and his blue eyes light of the room. Nothing is said but the appreciation is visible. A moment frozen in time.

Those big blue eyes and sweet smile, enough said, thank you for the amenity of warmth.
