Are there ever moments in your life when you realize something strange about yourself? It happens to me frequently. Like recently (okay, last summer - but I was just thinking about it today!) when
I don't think she knows, to this day, how I have treasured those freezer bags. Why? I have no idea! But every time I go to use one -- oh yes, I have plenty left! -- I'm kind of hesitant. Let's be honest; I could go buy lots of freezer bags at Target. It's not like we can't afford them. Maybe I feel this way because it's not something I usually purchase...?
But it's more than that. They feel like a luxury to me. Again, I have no idea why. I grew up not lacking anything, but with parents who weren't incredibly well off. Maybe because of that -- growing up in an environment where we conserved resources as much as possible and where I knew not to waste things -- maybe because gallon-sized freezer bags weren't something we had an abundance of... maybe that's why?
As I'm typing this out, I'm certain you're all going to think I'm crazy. But you have something, don't you? Please tell me you do. What's your simple luxury -- your gallon-sized Ziploc bag? What's the thing that other people take for granted -- or maybe just don't think a second thought about -- that is quietly luxurious to you?
I'm curious. I don't want to feel so alone!
