There are times when you are reminded that some things are universal. The hubby went to India for work about 8 months ago and remarked on the fact that for all their differences, one of the things they bonded over was talking about their kids. I watched this video from Sears and was reminded about that bond again between fathers and daughters, and how universal that is.
My father had a few Craftsman tools. Just a few. Some tools he had more than one of, as I’m sure any man does (I can’t even count how many drills the hubby has). He was forever out in his woodshop building furniture or his miniature Christmas scenes or just fixing something. I remember wandering out there on occasion and just sitting there on a stool watching him work, with the stern admonition that I was not to touch anything unless I wanted to lose a finger. Sometimes I think about that when I see the hubby at the kitchen table, reading glasses perched on the end of his nose, peering intently as he works a pair of pliers and a tiny screwdriver trying to fix the latest whatever-it-is that our daughter has broken. I would like for the hubby to have a shop one day so my daughter can have some of those same memories. Well, not the part about losing fingers.
But now all I have of my father are those memories. If I close my eyes sometimes I can still smell the sawdust.
As a little girl, I remember anytime my father “needed” a new tool that meant a trip to Sears and I always went with him. Kenmore and Craftsman were familiar names in our home as my father always taught us the importance of quality and displayed these brands proudly. To this day, anytime we step foot inside of Sear I am hit with a wave is nostalgia and have to visit the tool section. Something about the store simply warms my heart and immediately brings a smile to my face.
