It's More Than a Piece of Fabric

Image found here

I hope you enjoy the beautiful imagery of this from The Cranky Native as much as I did:

"....I love the part of the holiday when we put the table cloth on the table. It is almost like touching the past for me. In the act of lifting the cloth into the air several times until you reach the ultimate perfect circumference, all the edges and ends even and smoothing out wrinkles. Womankind has that in common. I have been on the other end of that cloth with generations of women. I see their faces in this simple task and it reminds me of my humble roots and I thank God for giving me the peace I find in table cloths."

Ahhh. What a lovely thought. Now I know what that special feeling is as I smooth the wrinkles from my mother's tablecloth as I place it on MY table....

Thank you.
