January is well underway as we are already on the 15th! Y'all I just can't imagine where time is going and why so fast.
Alas, all we can do is show up, do our best and let God do the rest.
Today's guest is new to our blog. You may remember back in August (2019) Andrea interviewed me RE: The Visionary, for her podcast, Discover the Story so please open your heart while Andrea shares hers....
How Much Are Your Memories Worth?
As I pack on room after another, preparing for our move from Wisconsin to South Carolina, I find things from when my sons were boys, teenagers, and into their college years. I save it. Pack it. But then one of my sons asked why I was keeping all the photo albums from my girlhood too. Goodness! I’m even packing photos from when my mother was a baby.
“Throw ‘em out, Mom,” one son advised. “What are you going to do with them? You’re moving to an apartment.”
He makes a good point and yet, I cannot throw them out. Taking pictures of the pictures and saving them on a CD or flash drive is one solution and one that I may do in the near future.
Meanwhile my precious books, furniture, and framed art is priced to sell quickly. We can’t afford storage or moving fees so I’m advertising locally and it’s got to go.
Still, it’s difficult to see all my memories carried off for a fraction of what they’re worth—at least for what they’re worth to me.
Oh wow, Andrea, I know what you mean! I remember downsizing from a 3 bed room house to living in a bedroom in someone else's home. Now I live in a tiny (12 x 30) house! I still have some things stored at my dad's and plan to weed through and get rid of a lot more this year. Never easy but as they say...you can't take it with you.
Good luck and God's blessings on your move.
