some things are Meant To Be

Tucked deep into bookcases, kitchen- and lingerie drawers are twenty-five years’ worth of Valentine cards. I just can’t bring myself to toss them out knowing exceedingly well that those cards can’t replace twenty-five years’ worth of memories.

But they’re stashed together with vintage linens, old photographs, forgotten books, and timeworn dish towels

O Sentimental me.

One thought on “some things are Meant To Be

  1. It is hard to let go of the images that represent the memories. I’ve forced myself to let go of a lot of things recently, and each one was a little painful. But then, the memories remained. I’ve let go of a lot, but I cannot let go of everything.
