I bought the above faded box - this week
on my thrift hunting - which i love doing .
I got it - pretty cheap - with the contents
included - which to me - was a pittance for
something which was owned and treasured
by a lady called Barbara . Memories placed into
an 8 " x 5 " box - for someone else to discard
them and have no interest in a past family member .
This saddened me somewhat - but now i have
these and the memories will continue it`s journey .
Inside were gifted cards of Christmas and birthday
celebrations - which she chose to keep -
some dates are from 1936 .
Just a selection of the 30 cards inside .
Is this all that she had kept ? ?
And was this all of her life`s memories - just fitting
inside such a small box ? Do you judge how big the
box and what contents are inside ? ?
How big would my box be ???
These we all going through my mind .
What tugged at my heart strings -
was the below handmade card -
From a gentleman friend called Jimmy .
It reads ....
Though my greetings i send on brown paper
My wishes are hearty and true .
And no costly card e`er brought warmer regard
Than my simple card brings to you .
Something made this simple -
for a dear friend - would certainly have
touched her - like it did me .
Thankyou Barbara ....
