We recently moved.
We lived in our old home for 18 years. That means we collected a lot of stuff.
Most of it…we do not need! They are things. However, I am one of those sentimental people who collects things with memories and have a hard time letting them go.
“I can’t get rid of that_____(fill in blank), it was my_____(fill in blank, again).
I love them!”
“This _____(fill in blank) belonged to my great_____(fill in blank). It has got to be worth something.” So back in the box, closet, bag, or something else it goes, until next time you decide to clean out the box, closet, bag, or whatever.
Well, not this time. I mean it! We don’t have room to keep everything we had in our old house.
One of the ways I have found to ease the pain of parting with things is…pictures.
If I take a picture, it means the memory doesn’t have to fade, because I can still see it.
This darling little puppet was made in elementary school by Alex my “Most Quoted” son.
He was such a cute little boy!
In class he created his puppet using garbage type items. The stick poking out the bottom moves up and down making the monster “Mo” go in and out of the box, which is an old bandage box.
Can you stand it? How creative is he!
Well, I now have a picture, and a blog post, and I will never forget the creative, darling monster “Mo” that Flexy made in elementary school.
And I get to share all of that with you!
