MaMaw's Treasures




My Mamaw died five years ago.


She was 90.


She left behind a lot of people who loved her


And a few treasures.


I got one of them.



These drawers were where she went when we said:


"Mamaw, Do you have?..............."


She always had what we needed.




Now, when *the littles* say


"Nonny, do you have??........................"


I'll know right where to go.


MaMaw made sure of that.

Isn't it amazing how "things" keep us connected to those we love? Thank the good Lord for sweet memories. How blessed you truly are to have this sweet reminder and how great to pass it on to your Littles! Have a BLESSED week!

My grandma had drawers just like this. I hadn't thought about them in years. Thanks for bringing back the memory.

Such a sweet post. Your MaMaw had the prettiest white hair. And my grandmother was like that. She always had what we needed when we asked her. I know you cherish those drawers. Love & blessings from NC!

Just a little something from Judy said...

What a special lady and what a sentimental and useful gift. I am impressed by her thinking and her organizational skills. I like how you showed the picture of the contents of the drawer. Someday maybe your children will be sharing the same thing about you. Love how that works.
