Finding lost treasures


Do you know what I love?

Finding things I thought were lost forever.

Yesterday, tucked away in a dark dusty place, I found a set of books I could have sworn perished in a house fire six years ago.

I almost cried.

A few other books I found.  Grimm's Fairy Tales was also a gift from my Nana.  The bottom book, Carmen of the Golden Coast, was passed down from my Nana to my mother to me.

  1. They were your Nana’s favorites too! I remember them. She loved to read and her writing were exceptional! I so missed her when she moved to Maine. That was another world away for me.

Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear what you think.
