This challenge is from Lisa ~ I think she did a great job for her first time handing out challenges!
We all cherish our families and our homes and many of the bigger things in our lives. . .but what about something small? What is your most prized pocession? Is it a picture? Is it your great great Aunts tea set? Is it a family recipe? Is it something silly or sentimental? Tell us about it and why you value it and what makes it special to you. Please post a picture of the item if you can!
Wow. This one was really a hard one for me. I am pretty sentimental and find that I value a lot of the little things in life. Because of this, I tend to hang on to a lot. I am also on a journey to de-clutter my life, so I've learned to try to let go of some things. After thinking long and hard about this, I finally came up with one of my most prized pocessions - and here it is:
This is a heritage album. My grandmother, that I often speak about, gave me these photos. She knew that I would do something special with them and I have. I have pictures in this album that date back to 1909. I have wedding photos of my grandparents, great-grandparents and even my great aunt's. I have baby pictures of my father and my aunt that were taken in Japan while my Grandfather was stationed there during his service in the USAF. I am sure that there are older pictures of our family floating around somewhere, but to think that she trusted me with these precious memories mean a lot to me.
I have a very diverse background. My mother is Korean. My father is French/German and grew up around the Pennsylvania Dutch. I married a Bolivian. Isn't that a great hodge-podge? I think so. Just imagine the potlucks at our house! LOL Unfortunately, we are all many miles and miles apart. I take comfort in knowing that I have something that helps me to trace back my roots, what makes me special - what makes me different.
