Memento I
This afternoon I washed some wonderfully delicious grapes. I shared them with my husband. This evening I received, via Fed Ex a Chinese Silver Chest that was a gift to my mother from my father. Giving, receiving.  These are special moments in our lives ....and more so when it is not anticipated.  I will oil the chest, and clean all the dusty nooks and crannies out of respect for my mother and father and what they gave me, far beyond this piece of carved wood.   This silver chest I will cherish.  It holds many memories.  The grapes i shared with my husband will also be a memory put aside, but one that goes into a chest of memories.  Simple moments, simple things.:
