There is such a cleansing feeling of getting rid of the stuff that clutters the corners and closets of our home. As we wait for the arrival of our recently discharge soldier son, the ritual of moving items from one storage closet to another has taken place. I feel like I play ring-around-the-closets. I focus on cleaning one closet by moving items to another. Later, I’ll clean the new closet by moving stuff back to the old one.
If I’m lucky or smart, some items will be reviewed, appraised and discarded. With that comes a feeling of freedom, closure and yes, cleansing.
