Socks the Sock Monkey

My sock monkey arrived as a birthday gift in August - that's 8 months ago. He likes to hang out on my bed, tumble onto the floor occasionally, and hide under the covers.


My sock monkey is a daily reminder to keep things simple and not take myself too seriously. There are a couple of other lessons I've learned from this "pet", too:

  1. Stay flexible.
  2. Beanies aren't just for French folks.
  3. A little imagination turns the everyday into something special. Look what came from a sock!
  4. A smile opens lots of doors.
  5. When all else fails, go back to bed.

What a beautiful thought and so inspiring. I loved how you wrote about the monkey.


I think I will get one for the same reason! Love this, and you have a gift for writing!

I love your post. I also have a small collection of old and new sock monkeys. (I prefer the older ones, but love all of mine.) There's actually a 'Sock Monkey Museum' in Rockford, Ill. - the city where the socks are manufactured. They do take you back to the 'simpler' days. And they always have a smile for you! Thank you for posting this.
