Treasures From the past - Remembering

My mom was always encouraging us to create today I thank her from my heart as today is the second anniversary of my mom's passing~ a treasure lost and memories abound~She spent her life as an educator of elementary school children. Later when semi retired she worked at Job Corp. in SF, CA. Her focus was always on children and learning. She was dedicated to her children and grand children. A scrabble fanatic! My scrabble partner was one never to be reckoned with. Although we tried!! Life taken too soon, when she chose to have a knee operation and suffered a stoke and later died within 2 months. Here are treasures from my mom and grand parents. Just cleaned up and ready for viewing. I have it in various spots in my house. The glassware circa pre 50's and 60's- I have in a curio, the train case in my bedroom. I bought a special jewelry box for all my mom's jewelry. (Which she loved so dearly and always so fashionable) The sewing goods are in my laundry/sewing room. The vintage doll, tucked away for special viewing. It was my grandma's from when she was a girl. Then passed on to my mom and now me. The pretty embroidered linens-Does anyone do this anymore? My grandfather worked for Coca Cola bottling company and I remember him bringing us mini cokes that we could actually open and drink from the bottle. I never could find the one's I didn't open. See the mini coke bottles next to a glass perfume bottle. Another one of my favorites is the vintage curlers and clothes pins. Would kids today even know what they are? Thanks for stopping by and seeing a little herstory. These are only tiny reminders of family members lost too soon~Cherish your loved ones daily!
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity. Gilda Radner
