Sorry this is late today. The system was down last night when I usually post but seems to be up and running.
So.....I was thinking yesterday, do you have something ‘special’ from a relative or friend that you treasure? Some small item that doesn’t have much, if any, monetary value but to you it’s priceless! Maybe it’s a piece of costume jewelry that belonged your grandmother. Perhaps you have your granddad’s hammer that he was forever using out in his workshop. It might be a gift from someone who wasn’t even related but whom you admired and loved.
Both of my grandmothers did needlework. Often times it was tiny crocheting that turned into edges around doilies or it might be an entire table cloth. My favorite grandmother send me several ladies hankies that she had for many years. One I particularly loved had a dainty blue edge on it. It’s not worth anything to someone else, in fact my kids would likely throw something like that out as old junk…but to me it was my lovely grandmother. When hubby and I married 15 years ago (yep, still newlyweds…lol) I carried the small hankie with my bridal bouquet. When my son married and more recently when my ‘extra’ daughter married I offered both of the ladies their choice of one of grandmother’s hankies to carry on their wedding day. She still is very alive in my heart and theirs too.
What special treasure do you have?
