Sentimental........traditional..........emotional..........sensitive.........and hoarder of memorabilia! All of these describe little old me! I save it all....grocery receipts, ticket stubs, cards, travel brochures, sand from the beach, etc. You get the picture. Yes, I save it all but in reality very little of it is special to me. I have my top five special items that if gone would make me sad. One of these top five items has been missing for several years. I gave up hope of finding it. Such a simple thing that holds so much meaning to me. I have searched high and low for it. In my frantic search over the years I have torn apart closets, drawers, containers in my garage and it never turned up. But today it did!! What is it you ask?
It is a Valentine's Day card that my dad gave to me in 1975! This special card is 39 years old and it means so much to me. Guess what? I found it on a day that I needed a little of piece of my dear dad the most! He has been gone for many years and I miss him terribly. For awhile today, with this card in hand, he felt right with me. It's been a good day.
