Heart Apron

Apron Story

“It is in the shelter of each other that people live.” ~ Irish Proverb

Anyone have cozy memories of being in the kitchen with their grandma? Mine was the grandmother of everyone’s dreams – the old fashioned kind who had a puffy lap to nestle in and a warm hug to settle in. Her heart  was big!

If you are a baby boomer, you probably remember your grandmother and perhaps your mom wearing an apron in the kitchen.  A pretty freshly laundered and ironed apron was part of dressing every morning.

A few years ago I found this poem about aprons. With thanksgiving just the corner, I’ve decided to share it once again because it makes one think of the deeper meaning of an apron beyond a piece of cloth.

The sentiments in the poem remind me of the kind of  love and protection I had in my upbringing from both my parents and grandparents. I wish every child had it in their future to feel safe and secure.
