The Gift of Old

There are few things better than the gift of old

Treasures, passed down from one family member to another.

Books, the ones you loved, read and reread, now shared with your children and grandchildren.

Sights, the ones you’ve missed since springtime…the city, the lights, the window displays.

Recipes, from grandparents, moms and dads, their favorite dish, exactly the same when made today.

Stories, of childhood memories or just the past spent together.

Friends, the ones you can call, zoom or see and just spend time with, without measuring the hours.

New can be great…but the gift of old is always welcome.
