Never Thought About It

Yes there were words of love in  his remark

Grandma you need a new step  stool

A old stool  that has paint on it

The padded top is no longer padded

But

I bought that stool  3 years before he was born

It got me to many high places

I could not have otherwise reached

I remember when he used it to sit tall

at the table

No telephone books or pillows

Just my  sturdy  old stool

I remember the times he used it

At the kitchen sink

So he could help wash dishes

Or reach things he was allowed to have..

I remember all the little ones who used it

after he grew  bigger

The  memories in that old stool that is now

over  30 years plus..

That ols stool

It made the unreachable reachable

Was always reliable when  I needed

to change a light bulb or paint a ceiling

Was there to assist a Child

to get  where they needed to be or

wanted to be.

That old stool is still sturdy

Not  rusty

Just old

But   laden with memories

Don't think I want a new stool

I think I need  to keep my old friend

who has never let me down

Never failed a child in need

It's not as old  as I am

So  why should it be replaced

With something new and shiny

That was not made to last

Like my old step stool from the past

That is  laden with Memories
