Beginnings and Endings

10 Jan

As we loaded Christmas decorations into the attic, stashing hopes and dreams into plastic containers for the next 11 months, we decided to take yet another round of Susan’s garbage out of our attic.  This represents the last of the items left behind by our home’s previous owner.


It’s more than a little heartbreaking to see the memories, once worth saving, left behind like piles of useless rubbish.    The little girl who once laid her head on this pillow, where is she now?  Whatever happened to the woman who sewed it for her?

It’s odd, having your happy beginning spring from someone else’s sad ending.
