Opening the Time Vault
Peeking into the Abyss it looked dreadfully scary. The walls are lined with storage shelving, filled and overflowing. When things no longer fit on the shelves they began to line the floor. As more time passed things were randomly and haphazardly thrown in to be out of the way elsewere. So clutter galore. Broken glass. Broken plastic. Stuffy smelling. Scary. Yet it needed to be done so I started one box at a time. This has been my day. Going through boxes, boxes and more boxes. Much has been thrown away. I have reminised. Times past. Some memories nearly forgotten. Pictures that made me laugh. A few letters that made me cry. Cards of romance that wooed me in my courtship with my man. Old prayer lists. Journals. Junk, junk and more junk. Some things I thought were lost forever. Smiles. Laughs. Sighs of exhaustion. Sighs realizing more to be done. Things to be sorted and given away. It must be done. Thankful for unexpected treaure found today.
