Chapter 11, Page 23, Book 12
If most of us are ashamed of shabby clothes and shoddy furniture, let us be more ashamed of shabby ideas and shoddy philosophies.... It would be a sad situation if the wrapper were better than the meat wrapped inside it.
Number 23 of 30 things I'm thankful for in November
This is one of those things we take completely for granted. We have the ability to choose what to wear, we have the choice to buy what we want. Many people don’t have this option, be thankful.
I am thankful for the warmth and comfort my clothing provides on these chilly days. I'm certainly not a fashion model of any sorts, a warm comfy set of sweats does it for me most days. While my closet still holds a multitude of clothes I used to wear to work, most aren't worn at all anymore.
This time of year I start layering up. An extra layer or two of clothing helps to save when it comes to the fuel bill too. After a long winter and things warm up again, I shed the layers and feel like I've lost a pound or two.
People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile.
