Donated Moms clothes, then I cried

by jl333 on November 3, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's been a task I've dreaded doing. As silly as it sounds, I felt like I had piece if my Mom with me if I held onto her clothes. I dreaded the drive to the place where I donated her gently used clothes. But I did it. She always dressed real classy. I know deep in my heart she is still with me and watches over me, with or without me hanging onto her clothes.
