Old socks

Last weekend I visited my mother. She had being tyding a chest of drawers and found a pair of knitted socks.
 - Do you want these? she said.
- Yes, I answered, have you made them now?
 - No, she answered, your grandmother made them. I started to feel emotional.  A pair of socks made by my beloved gran, who died 24 years ago. I brought the socks home, and as I put them in my drawer I thought: Will I ever wear these?  I will probably wear them when I am in need of comfort, because nobody could comfort me like gran. Strange ain't it, that a pair of socks can make you feel so emotional.
