    'Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind....'

    God told Israel to pass on truth and to set up markers to remind them to tell their children the stories of the past....I do feel saddened that in our current culture the concept of family, extended family is getting lost.

    So on this topic let's not forget passing on memories is not just for us, it is to remind our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren of their roots and heritage.....

    How important is this to our children and grandchildren...? Are we leaving pictures, stories, history to them?

The other day it accidentally got pushed off the desk and broke into several pieces. For about five seconds I was sad, then I was actually glad. It's one less thing I have to deal with--memories or no memories. I'm so tempted to "accidentally" break a bunch of other stuff I can't bear to part with.
    I'll be happy to send over my tiny tornado to help you with any and all breakage.

    I'm not quite ready for that yet. But maybe soon.

    Define: stuff. If you are a hoarder in dire need of an intervention and can’t find the silverware drawer, I can see that part. My son would love to have my stuff.

    My mom was queen of the yard sale. I am not looking forward to rummaging through her stuff. But there was that 1oz gold bar that is hiding somewhere in the mix :)
