I started with the book section, the one that never fails to uplift my spirit. I emptied the book cabinets, and lovingly cleaned them off dust. Next, I looked through hubby's old briefcases at the file storage. What I found made me smile. I found his old newspaper cuttings, those little inspiring quotes a few years before the internet made its way to this part of the world. I remember at times I'd sit by his side when he cut them out and be the one charmed by those words. I bet he has forgotten all about these cuttings, but here's one, just to make him nostalgic:
Make the moments count
You've only one life to live!
Our days and years so swiftly mount-
Today's the day to give!
Why waste precious time
on empty foolish things?
For there are heights sublime to climb-Attainment sweet vict'ry brings
(by Kathryn Thorne Bowsher)
Ah, wonderful little things. Now guess who's feeling nostalgic...
