Small Space

 Small space filled 
with memories

 I have a little hallway off
the living room and bedroom
that melts my heart 
every time I pass through it
I've filled it with treasures that are very special to me

Like my daughter's wedding portrait

and that same sweet daughter gave me the pitcher 
and wash bowl as a birthday present years ago
I cherish it

 It's sitting on hubby's grandmother's
old singer sewing machine cabinet
and covered with one of my 
grandmother's linens

I've collected the plates over the years
The embroidery piece is very special

My grandfather lost his leg in WWI
While he was in the hospital convalescing
he embroidered this piece
to keep his mind off the pain

It's been passed down four generations
and I am privileged to display it
(until it's passed down again)

Every Little Birdie says
 This small space
holds a very large place
in my heart

Happy Labor Day!
