It's All in the Collar

Although I got to go through the racks of my clothing and select some stuff, it won't arrive for a couple days. Since the seasons are changing, I need warmer clothing. It will be nice to wear my own clothing again! The comfort that will bring me is beyond measure! I am very appreciative of the donated and borrowed clothing, and feel I made the most with what I had. It was not an easy thing, to swallow my pride and set aside the importance I normally put into my outfits. For the last month, I've been extremely grateful I had something to put on my back and will never take that for granted again! One thing became very clear to me, clothes does not make the person, no matter how often that is said. Clothes is merely the outer shell we put on to face the world. A person is made from within, and that is what really counts. I'm realizing how blessed I truly am and how humbling this experience is proving to be. The journey is just beginning, but I feel I will be able to get through it helped by what is inside me and not by what envelops me.
