I thought to myself the other day......" I need to throw this clothes basket away, the handle is ripped and hurts to carry it" Then a flood of memories came running back..
The impromptu bridal shower my maternal grandparents gave me some 30 yrs ago. You see, they came in the front door of the house I grew up carrying that very basket. It was filled with everyday needs to start "house keeping". Flour, sugar, spices, all covered up with linens that my great grandmother had stitched by hand. The other thing they carried, were their wonderful smiles of pride and love for their only granddaughter. A simple but wonderful day.
Who would think a old Rubbermaid clothes basket could make someone so happy twice in a life time. I think I will keep it. You see it is a Sentimental Life!
