ABC Wednesday: "M" is for...

Memories

I found this little collage of objects decorating a wall in the retirement home where my mother-in-law is living. A gathering of school-day nostalgia, it struck me as very sweet and poignant. I wonder if any of the residents have ever noticed it, and what their reaction would be.

  4. What a wonderful 'M' post. Memories can be so wonderful -- or so bittersweet.

  6. This is a lovely idea - far better than keeping these mementoes hidden in a drawer.

  11. I think it's super neat. I bet some of them have admired it. My grandmother was always aware of the things around her, and that is really cool.

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
