This is a repost from a similar theme in 2008. These are some of my treasures. The red and blue blanket is a gift from my grandmother. It was made by the Cherokee Indians. Her father was a Cherokee. The yellow and white blanket was my oldest son's favorite blanket. He would sit by the washing machine on wash day and cry until I got it out. He would never let me dry it. The shoes without toes in them are from my oldest son's t bar that he had to wear on his legs. I cried and cried when they put it on him and the doctor swore it would bother me more than it would him. I kept black bruises on my thigh from him kicking me with them when I carried him. The little cup and spoon were my son Micheal's. The woman in the picture is my wonderful grandmother. She was a beautiful, kind, and loving woman. I miss her everyday. The young man in the other photo is my brother Tommie. He died April 8, 1989. He was an angel and God took him home. The tiny black shoes were my daughter Erin's. I have given them to her for her daughter that is due in May. The cap and gown are mine. I graduated in 1986. I was a mother of two and only 18. The cards are from my children and other family members. I have so many of them they fill a big box. The angel and child was a gift from my husband when we lost our second baby. There is no grave site with a miscarriage but this gave me something special to hold onto.
