When I was younger, my mother made sure to provide me the warmest, as well as, longest winter coats she could find. I was too young to understand that just one of those coats would take up most of her pay check. I would complain about how those coats were too long, how I felt silly wearing them, that her concern for my warmth was overbearing. I laugh at myself thinking about that now. Years and years of me not wearing those beautifully coats. The older I got, the more I realized just how essential those coats were for me. I can recall almost every single one she ever got me, I can describe in great detail what they looked like and how they felt. It’s too bad, because I wish those coats still lived in my closet instead of my memories. Anyhow, I wish I had been more grateful for those coats, as well as for my mother, making sure I had something to keep me warm.
