Treasures from the attic is a bit of a stretch but it made a better title than Treasures From the Space Over the Garage. Last summer I got together with my siblings at my brother Chris’ house in Ashland, Ohio and we went through some of my mom’s belongings that she no longer had room for when she moved to Memory Lane at Copeland Oaks. I got all the pictures and photo albums and documents and they have been sitting in plastic bins in the apartment space we have above our garage. I have high hopes to get stuff organized but it certainly has not happened yet.
Today I moved over here to give Chris some peace and quiet as he worked and took calls and opened one of the bins up. I found this great little “artifact” from my Grandpa and Grandma Brown’s wedding . It’s a sweet little suede covered book with their marriage ceremony and more in it. One for Life seems like the perfect title since they were married for well over 50 years.
You can imagine I loved looking at this little treasure again. I know I had seen it before we sorted but I had not spent any time looking at it. I am so happy that I have so many great things from the past from my family. It makes my heart happy to look at things that my family saved for over 100 years. Wow. When I typed that it hit me. 100 years of history all packed up in a couple of plastic totes. I need to treasure those. And I do.
Tell me what is something that you have that you treasure. Is is something expensive? Something sentimental? Something that someone gave you or that you found? I would love to hear all about it to make sure you leave a comment. Comment for a Cause – Transylvania Tomorrow is our cause for May 2020. I’m listening.
