January 30th

Today's prompt: 3 OLD THINGS SEEN NEW:

What book is older than the Bible, but allows me every day to see something new? 

This cabinet was my Grandma's. I have so many memories of going to her house for Christmas or a family get together, and when she sold her house and downsized, it was one of the things that I received. It is even more scratched and dinged - especially after a 1,000 mile move, but each scratch tells a story. And the treasures it holds - all little pieces of my past...

And this was given to me by my husband, before we were married...right before the first time he told me he loved me. He had been at our house one evening, and when he left and I climbed the stairs to go to bed, I found this and a vase of flowers in my room. I'm pretty sure my mom was in on it! But saying I love you is something that is easy to allow to get old...and I want every day to see it for the treasure it is...
