↓And this one holding those things John wanted to save, mostly church bulletins and old copies of daily devotionals, but also things that surprised me like photos he took when I was not aware and cards and notes I wrote him. I didn't know that men did that, but this one did. He pretty much saved everything.☺
↓Here's a music box where I can switch out graphics or photos. Guess I am either very late or very early.
These boxes are filled with mementos for John's girls: photos, letters, and even little drawings and old cards. ↓
↓Here's a ceramic box that my mother used for peppermint candies. I can still smell them a little, though faintly, faintly, faintly.
This may look like a jewelry box, though it is for stationery.↓
I have a favorite. Since you are visiting me today, you are sitting in it. What?! Yes, I consider this little blog my treasure box filled with all the people and things I love best. Many of my favorite scriptures and quotes are contained here. It also holds many of the lessons I have learned and thinks I have thinked. ☺ It might even contain a rant or two. Most of all, it contains the precious memories that I might forget without it.
Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

Now tell me, do you journal, keep a diary or a blog? If you don't, please consider it. If you have gotten away from recording your doings, your feelings, your failures, your joys, sorrows, too, because life is crazy, busy or complicated, plan a time for returning. You will be glad that you did.
See you soon!
