Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow
Why hang on to an old hanky or a scripture plaque or a piece of costume jewelry or boxes of  decades old cards and letters?   Easy answer for me...because parting with a loved one's lifetime collection of possessions is difficult when you know they were imp...

Wordless Wed...Bottom Drawer Collection
