Other peoples’ things

September 2, 2008

I just left a comment for UmberDove and it got me thinking, “I don’t think she’ll misinterpret that…”

I miss my mom’s parents something fierce and I find myself trying to reconnect to objects of theirs because I’m terribly sentimental.  I can’t imagine the hours my mom, my brother and I have spent combined trying to find the painting that hung over their fireplace (You can’t even imagine how many paintings of running horses were massed produced!  I alone have viewed at least a thousand to no avail.)

The original treasures I did have the forethought to ask for are really treasures to me.  This is why when there is something that a loved one owns that, to me, represents them in a way most special to me…. I don’t hesitate to ask them to make a note in their will that it goes to me.

So if I ask you for something of yours “when you die” please don’t see it as anything other than an expression of love and wanting a piece of you to touch, hold and enjoy.  Feel free to do the same.




  1. Okay…so when I die, what would you really like to have? Please tell me so I can put your name on it now…honestly I would like to know.

  2. I will “go shopping” next time I am there 😀

  3. I thought you had done that the last time! Haley said the bronze owl would be nice….
