I helped my grandma clean her basement last weekend.
This basement was like a treasure trove
filled with secrets,
that no one could fathom
To look through bottles, books and things
and having my grandma tell of all the excitment they bring
made me smile.
I could listen
to my grandma talk of her proud glory days.
She was a mother,
and lover of people.
She worked hard for her family,
and this has paid off
with beautiful children,
and great-grandchildren to top it off.
Recalling memories is a beautiful thing
to see a person’s face light up with exuberance and glee.
My grandmother’s face was a ray of sunshine,
looking over her collections of a lifetime.
What are some things that you think will be included in your collections of a lifetime?
