There are layers and layers on that old rocking chair.

Layers of paint hiding underneath a shiny black.

Each layer holds a memory.  It once was white.  And a mom rocked babies.  To soothe.  To snuggle.  To remember.

Each layer tells a story.  It once was green.  And grandmas rocked grandbabies.  To love.  To hold.  To remember.

Each layer shares a moment of love.  It once was brown.  And great-grandmas rocked great-grandbabies.  To just remember.

The paint on that old rocking chair chips and exposes another layer of paint.  Sharing another memory.  Sharing another story.  Sharing more love.
