I am going through assorted stuff in my house in preparation for a big move. My intention is to get rid of as much as possible so we do not carry so much on to the next place. I have more than one box of my kids’ art work and school papers, mostly from elementary school. I went through a large box yesterday thinking I would be able to throw out some of it. I ended up keeping most of it. Their drawings and notes are just so precious to me. I did have some laughs reading a few of their notes. One from my daughter said ‘I was the meanest Mom she ever met.’ Most of her notes are very loving but I must have fell out of her graces at that point. My son would write more formal letters addressed to Mom and Dad, and when he was really serious, to Mr. and Mrs. Drucker. I just can’t throw this stuff out. Someday, when they go through our stuff, I think they will find it funny and sweet as well.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS, is hosted by Linda G Hill. The prompt for today is “use any word that begins with the letter “m” as the subject or theme for your post.” ( I used the ‘m’ loosely in this post)
