Hard times coming...

Papa MB and I were texting today, I think the time may be approaching that we have to confront Mama MB's things.  Things in particular this time just so happen to be her clothing.

I myself had requested a few items last year so that I could attempt to make some of those memory bears.  We haven't done it yet.

Today he brought the subject up because my aunt has recently inquired on the matter as well. Turns out she would like to make a blanket or something like that.

I don't know how it's going to be having to sit down and go through her things.  He asked me if I would like to wear any of her things, or if they would fit.

I just don't know how I feel about this. I don't know what to do or even how to approach the issue. I don't think I'm ready.

-Hang in there


  1. You'll know when you're ready, and don't be pushed into doing anything until you are.

  2. -not the same, really, but my Dad's wife fairly quickly donated all of Dad's clothes after he died. I hadn't wanted any of his clothes save for a few Pendelton shirts that I then gave away to good, male friends of mine. What I had wanted, but didn't trust myself to ask for were refrigerator magnets that I'd grown up with on our fridge. In the end, I 'liberated' one old, magnet from Dad's fridge. When I look at that magnet now, kind of an ugly hunk of metal, I am reminded both of my Dad and my childhood, two good things. As you say, 'hang in there!' x

  3. I always have something in my pocket that belonged to my dad. You will know when it's time!

  4. I kept a home made blanket in memory of my mum's creative side and used it in my baby boys' cribs. My siblings and I all took one keepsake each and donated most to charity. It is a difficult task to approach but the time will come. *hugs*

  5. *Hugs* do it when you're ready! I never even thought of creating a memory blanket or bear
