This time my story is short because I have a muscle spasm in my neck that started on Tuesday and is reluctant to let go, even with the persuasive power of Codeine, Paracetamol and Diazapam it is still causing severe pain. Story Telling Sunday is brought to you by the lovely Sian over at From High In the Sky . why not take a look at some of the other stories about Precious things after you have read mine - of course
Around March 2012 I took the box back to my cousin and gave her a detailed description of what I wanted on the top. I said "Can I have a few leaves and stuff and the words "Keepsakes" please?" Fortunately She knows me very well - a lifetime of finishing each other's thoughts can do that - and you can see the design she gave me. I think it is the most beautiful gift I have ever received, that wasn't from my husband or children. I keep it in my bedroom on the chest of drawers so that every day I look at it and think about the contents. Some of the things in there hold painful memories but memories I don't want to lose. Everything has a small piece of acid free paper explaining what it is and why it is kept and my children also know the stories for when I am gone.
So this is a very precious object and it contains many more.
