I found my grandmother’s bowl as I continued to unpack all the boxes that have been in storage for over a year. I wasn’t sure what had happened to it, so it was with a sigh of relief that I unwrapped this dish.
As you can see it’s a no-big-deal kind of bowl. Just a regular bowl. In fact, I’m not sure I even remember my grandma using this particular item, so I have no memory attached sentiments about it. But after she passed away EVERYTHING became important. During the get rid of/keep-it process that always follows after the death of a loved one, I took as much of my grandparents things as I thought I could successfully house without crossing over into the land of creepiness. I had to let a lot of things go.
These are a few things I kept that belonged to my grandparents. Not because they are worth much monetarily, simply because they were theirs.
