Clump #200: Sort out small bag of toys; take a big batch of stuff to the Goodwill.
I didn’t really see this coming, but — hey — 200 clumps! I always feel as though there should be a balloon drop at times like this, but I’ll settle for a leaf drop with rain drops, seasonally appropriate or not.
I sent the photo below to our son, who said all he wanted to keep of the “games, etc.” pile was the kite and the Knot Tying kit. I packed the rest up with a bunch of other items designated “give-away,” and gave them away.
I stumbled across this quote today and it seemed highly appropriate to the challenge:
“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” –Confucius
It’s been a learning experience trying to anticipate what will be kept (knot tying kit?). The things we keep tell a story about ourselves. Going through our son’s books told a story of a musician with very deep thoughts and an appreciation of humor. I hadn’t remembered the book pictured below.
I flipped through its pages and this quote stopped me in my tracks:
Sending the power of love to you.
