Cleaning out an attic and what do I find? A Reading FC mug. Oxford, MS December 3, 2021, 5:59 PM

It’s been almost two years since my stepmother has lived in her home in Oxford, Mississippi and we are (finally) beginning the process of emptying the home, saving the special things, discarding those things that aren’t and finding new homes for many of the things we can’t keep. It’s a process and there’s a lot to go through, but we are making headway.

She and my dad lived in Reading, England for several years in the late 70s and early 80s. I remember visiting several times and spending Christmas and New Year of 1978 with them. There are lots of memories in this cup.

Like so many things in life, there more to this story. A connection from the late 70s to the present day and possibly well into the future. It’s gonna be a great day, but first I must press publish and get to school. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, digging up the past and illuminating the present.

What is something that you pulled out that brought back a strong memory? Please share.

    1. Cleaning out a house is a big chore. We are back in two weeks and a day to finish the job. Our stepmother wants to be there with us but can’t. There were a few things that were stored away in the attic that hopefully are finding new owners this weekend. Stay well, peace.

    1. Thank you for popping in and visiting. There is all sorts of things that are special and have meaning to me and especially her. She’s 600 miles away in Texas and the house has been empty since February ’20. Friday morning my Five Minute Journal reminded me that, “It is the preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly.” Bertrand Russell. I am not sure about living nobly, but possessions do tend to tie us down. I need to begin t apply it to my own life and my own home. Stay well and safe. Peace.

Thanks for visiting MtDC. How are YOU Making YOUR Days Count?
