Simple items with such Meaning!!!

Today I had a car pull in and a man got out carrying
some items.
So Phil went out to talk to him and then he came and got
me to talk to him.......and then I recognized him.
I said where has your wife been.
I was not ready to hear that she had taken her own life.
He said I know she had really cared about you
and I wanted to bring you a few of her things
that I know she would have wanted you to have!
the iron he said had been her Grandmothers
these items just became priceless!


  1. It is hard to know what to say in a situation like that, kind of bitter sweet. It is nice that she thought so much of you...It is just very sad that she couldn't find something to hang on for.

  2. Oh no. That's extremely tragic. Of course they are priceless. What a sad, sad Christmas her family must have had. I can't even imagine.

  3. Oh, Heidi, this is sad. I'm sure you accepted them in the spirit they were given. Blessings, Diane

  4. i think one way or another you are going to have to hang on to that shop of yours. it seems to me it's a place people need, you know? i'm sure the man was glad he could drop off a few precious things in the arms of someone who knew his wife as well ...

  5. Dear Heidi,

    What a sad story, poor man! Special gifts indeed.

    Don't feel bad about your parcel not arriving yet. I am sure it will come :-)!

    Happy day!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  6. How very sad. I hope she didn't have children. Wish she could have been helped. You will treasure her things.

  7. This is the second sad loss I've heard of like this lately.....how awful, so tragic.....hope she is at peace now, love Melxx

  8. What a sad thing but I bet it bought some comfort to her husband to give you her things.

  9. ugh...how awkward is that?
    That poor man in his grief was thinking of what his wife would have wanted you to have....you would have thought he would have tossed it out...wow.

  10. Hej Heidi
    Snap!...nowhere to go either...well we have...but we won't leave the boys...
    So I have a nice pair of red PJ's to go with my red clogs lol!
    A glass or 2 of champers, a log fire, twinkling lights and televised Swedish New Year celebrations from SKANSEN in S'holm
    What more could a girl want?

    I auto replied I have just read your post! Soo sad, how tragic...You obviously were a special person to this lady...lovely that her husband could do something tangible.

  11. you obviously have the human touch 'h'. there is always someone worse off eh and yet this is not really a very comforting thought...

  12. That makes me sad. I'm sure he's missing her. It probably felt good for him to talk to you about her. And pass along a little bit of her. Oiy!
