Childhood things, so long ago

Daily Post photo challenge: Time.

Once the old has been used up and thrown out, hauled to the junkyard to be burned, memories become intangible. The past disappears.

    1. In a way, since the quilt was one that Mother made before I left home for college; she sent it home with us during the process of downsizing. I believe she gave me the cat pincushion when I first took up counted cross-stitch, which I very much enjoyed. After all these decades, earlier memories blend together. 🙂

      1. I sometimes feel that way, with blurred memories of my own children’s first years. Who did what when, I ask myself now and then. My curse for giggling at my mother-in-law when she couldn’t remember things I asked her about raising her own seven children. Of course I didn’t laugh to her face, she is a wonderful woman whom I respect very much. But I thought ‘how can she not remember these things?’ That was before I had my own children and ‘baby brain’ set in!

        1. My mind has always been a sieve, focusing more inwardly than out. Our family is large enough that she’s always had trouble keeping kids straight in her mind. [I know I’m in trouble when she starts calling me Dorothy (one of her sisters) or Roy (my father).] When she mentions having trouble remembering as she gets older, I ask her what our excuse was 30 years ago, when we were having the same problem. 🙂
