Yes, this is from Victoria’s Secret!
It had bottoms too, but I threw them away.
I’ve always been too hot.
Yup, never worn warm snuggly sweaters or sweatshirts because I’m always too hot.
I keep my winter coat in the car but rarely wear it.
Then Came Breast Cancer
Suddenly I couldn’t stay warm enough.
I had extreme exhaustion during and after radiation.
I sat and slept a lot – which was expected.
But it did nothing to keep me warm.
Blankets became my friends, but I couldn’t get up with them.
I had nothing warm to wear!
One day I remembered…
Buying a pair of PJs at a garage sale, as sort of a joke.
They were like thermal underwear and about 6 sizes too big,
But… they were from Victoria’s Secret and they looked like new!
The bargain hunter in me just had to have them.
I could just see Dan’s face when I told him I bought PJs from
Victoria’s Secret and I would wear them that night.
That brought another memory out of storage
I wore red footie one-piece PJs on our wedding night.
That was a tension breaker.
Less you think I’m crazy – I changed into something more appropriate.
I knew just where they were
I got them out and put them on.
I needed several big pins to make the waist fit, but I was finally warm.
Dan said I looked like a bag lady in them, but I was warm.
After a year of daily use…
They looked pretty rough.
Someone washed them where there was hard water, and they got big rust stains all over.
That didn’t discourage me. Of course, I was disappointed, but I wore them anyway.
Dan suggested I get rid of the baggy bottoms and buy some warm sweat pants.
Good idea, I could handle that.
But I was really attached to the top.
I couldn’t find anything that would replace them.
And I really tried.
Finally, I found a warm fluffy top that would work.
Dan liked it and so did I.
I couldn’t throw the Victoria’s Secret top away.
I wore it when Dan wasn’t around.
I realized a couple of days ago that it had become
I feel so safe and secure snuggled in it during my morning devotions.
No way do I think of it as replacing the Lord,
but it feels like a warm hug from Him.
