Trash Bags Full of Memories
When real estate agents recommend the disposal of all of those boxes in the basement and the closets, seniors sometimes face emotional and physical challenges.
I filled some trash bags from the contents of some boxes in our basement and those trash bags are now full of memories. There were many old kitchen items, bowls, plates and many decorative items as will as awards I received over the years. There was a commemorative plate from a member of Congress and a SPIKE Club mug from NAHB as well as mementos from new building ceremonies we attended. A big crystal ash tray also went into the bag. Some other items were still in the original boxes and had never been used. Yes, I am sure that someone would have love to have some of the items.
There are many more boxes and many more challenges to face.
