Serendipity Sunday ... Discovered Family Treasures Among the Disorder!

Real Estate Agent with ProStead Realty



Today I focused on cleaning and organizing a book case in my office.  I cleaned, I threw things out, I started a pay it forward box for the Salvation Army, and I organized.


While doing this I was thrilled to find two items that mean the world to me ...

  • The first is a small lavender filled cloth doll that my mother got me when she visited England and Scotland in 1980.  It is still in the original package.
  • The other item is a Christmas card and book from my brother.  He died in 1997 from a malignant brain tumor.


Both of these items were on the top shelf and in behind some big notebooks.


I was so thrilled and thankful.  It was like discovering family treasures for me.
