treasures found

I’ve been listing stuff to sell on eBay the past couple of days. Yesterday afternoon, I came across a cookbook that was Meema’s. It was in a box of books that Mom gave to me to sell. When I flipped through the pages to check for handwriting or damage, I noticed some handwritten papers. Two or three were recipes written by my aunts.

I came across a handwritten list of books that Meema wanted to read. Seeing her handwriting again after such a long time had a profound effect on me. I couldn’t breathe for a moment.

I found lots of newspaper clippings in the cookbook.. recipes, articles about people she knew, an article about Aunt M. running for re-election, and a clipping with a photo of me after winning a state vocal competition in high school. (I’m the one with blonde hair)

I always knew that Meema kept clippings of us and that she knew what was going on in our daily lives. I knew that she prayed for us when she knew we had a test in school that day. Seeing that clipping was a potent reminder.

I miss Meema. A lot. I’m so thankful to have had her in my life.
