I am thankful for "sentimental"

By

I can look around my house and see "sentimental" all over.  I don't see style and I don't see a lot of new, but I see things that mean So much to me. My curio is filled with sentiment.  I have a box that contains every letter Donald ever wrote to me. I have my grandfather's 10th grade years book.

Today before everyone arrived for Thanksgiving it was certainly confirmed where my very sentimental nature comes from... my mom.  We went down the storage area of the basement and unboxed her baby plate.  It's a glass sectional bowl and I wish I'd taken a photo of it today. But it's so cool.  It has a cord that comes out and you can put hot water in it to keep the food from getting cold.  Cooper had his first Thanksgiving meal from his grandgrandmama's baby plate. 

Today was also special that Cooper pulled to standing completely by himself for the very first time.  He'd been moving in that direction for a couple of weeks and I'm so thankful that he did it on a day when both Mama and Daddy were off work and he was home with them and they both got to see it. And sentimental me is happy to have the video safely tucked away on my phone and Facebook  so I can come back to this day again and again. Look at those little sweet fingers having found the top right before he pulled up for the first time. I am so thankful for my sentimental nature. It makes me love in a way that I don't believe that people who lack being sentimental can understand or feel.

Tammy I am sentimental too, Diane thinks I am a pack rat.... but in reality there is something in everything I see my parents, Diane's parents just as an example...so how could I not be sentimental. Hope your Thanksgiving was fantastic, Endre

Awww, parents (and grandparents) hate to miss the "firsts" so it's wonderful everyone was there for the first pull-up!

Hi Tammy... I totally get it... I'm very sentimental, as well. I'm not a pack rat but I do hang on to things that have or had meaning in my life. I suppose some of it has to do with the fact that my family emigrated here in the 1950's and were allowed two suitcases each so not much from my family's history could be brought over with the exception of some photo albums and silverware.

Hi Tammy - you're sentimental about all the right things in my opinion. We used to have a ceramic baby dish that one would fill with warm water, decorated with Mother Goose decals - don't know where that went; nice that you have your grandmother's.

Good morning Tammy.  Your feelings are a reminder for those of us in real estate what a home means to a seller.

Talking about your Mom's childhood plate, I thought of you on Thanksgiving, Tammy...

We got my husband's grandmother's Victorian sofa when she passed away. I had it recovered (you have seen it) and I love that couch - mostly because it was Mema's. Anyway, I had it re-sprung and recovered and it's still incredibly uncomfortable. With a heavy heart, I bought a new sofa that is coming next week. So, before all of the guys left on Thanksgiving, I had them move Mema's sofa to our walk-in attic that is soon to become a bonus room upstairs. It was heart-wrenching!

We'll have it up there when the room is finished but, still, it brightened my day every day, thinking of Mema and the wonderful times we had at her house when she was living. 

Yes, we share the sentimental bug, for sure!

It is sad that there are not as many sentimental people around anymore. You just keep on gushing and sharing those good feelings. They are contagious. Thanks for all your posts.
