The little yellow box

A couple weeks ago, my mother lent me a treasure box that had belonged to my grandmother, Inez. I was told I might as well see what I could do with it. So I have archived each and every piece inside and had a deep thought process of what I would do with them. I’ve come to the conclusion that these need to be shared before the yellowing of the paper crumbles and all is lost.

Grandma thought each clipping was worthwhile. It was during her early years teaching in Iowa that she began saving these, around 1925 and into 1940’s -roughly. I feel as the family blogger, I’m meant to give my family a glimpse of her personality (for those who never got to know her) through all of these tidbits she so carefully protected in this little yellow box. I also feel it’s going to be a labor of love from her to all of us who cherished her so. I think she’d be extremely pleased.

And so this Mother’s Day, I’m sharing a poem from this stash put aside for future generations. Thank you Mom for allowing me this priviledge! Happy Mother’s Day!
