DD showing off the storage shelves
that she just assembled in her home.
It made me think about 'stuff'
and why we hold on to it.
Most things I hold on to
are for sentimental reasons, not value.
She is just beginning
her lifetime accumulation of 'stuff'
while I, on the other hand,
need to start getting rid of it
so she won't have to one day!
She will never know the stories behind the items
or why they were sentimental to me
and of what they reminded me.
I need to look at my 'stuff' with the detachment
of sentiment, and start pitching and donating.
