Cleaning Out the House

It’s been interesting as we go through the process of cleaning out the house after the death of our father. Some of the family members are looking for things that are valuable and can be sold for cash. Others are gathering up sentimental objects that remind them of a time or place. There is nothing wrong with either option and still, it is very interesting to watch from the sideline.

I took an afghan I had crocheted years ago with Mom. (It was definitely a memory thing.) My oldest brother brought in someone to help him find the value of the antiques. He is all about the money and it’s sad because I don’t think he really has many great memories. 

Bro, got everything he wanted while Dad was still alive. He got the most prized treasure of all and he deserved it.

  1. I have many possessions of my son, my brother, sister, mother and father. And yes I have been in the middle of so much drama after a death. So uncalled for.

    Sharing helps me to this day, I hope it does you as well.

  2. i have something from my father that meant the world to me, mom handed it to me knowing what it meant.

    I know he is not the thing, not the object he is the feelings and memories.

    Keep sharing, you are helping more than yourself!
