And soon, I was driving in complete and beautiful silence.
It was nearing 4 pm - when, on a Sunday, the garage sales are packing up and quitting for another week, and I saw her - the sweetest little bookshelf.
I made sure my babies were asleep - one drooling, one snoring, and I slipped out of the car, locking it behind me. I seriously skipped across the street and pounced on that little bookcase.
The owner told me it was once her Grandmother's - a lovely reminder of winter evenings by the fire, snug and cozy in an afghan, drinking hot chocolate and finally being able to slide a story out of the dusty shelves. When her Grandma was moved to an old folks home, she made sure to save the bookshelf, and it had sat, ever since in her attic, collecting dust and taking up space. Like I've heard so many times before, "It's time to move on" and here that bookcase was - filled with phantom stories and old memories, sitting alone on a driveway - dejected.
