Man a week goes by fast! I read something not too long ago about what you collect. I know, craft supplies.... Seriously though the question was what do you find interesting enough to collect different ones of? I thought about this and couldn't come up with something right away. When I was 12, it was bookmarks. When I was older, it was books about the Titanic.
Now, well I found something... rocks. OK, quit laughing! Our family has experienced a few big losses in the past few years, and I was drawn to rocks... When my dad was still living, he finally got a chance to buy a piece of property of hs own. When her got back from 'his land' he gave my mom, my sister and I each a rock from his land. When he died 3 years ago, I finally got a chance to see his land in person (it's in northern Quebec). Upon leaving, I just felt I needed a ROCK from his land. So I took one to bring home to Alberta. You should have seen the look on my husband's face when I took it out of my luggage.
The next year, I visited my grandfather's original land and was again struck to need a piece of it. This time it was a little smaller, seriously!
Then my husband found a rock from where he spent all his summers as a little boy.
So here's my collection of rocks. Sure to grow as more significant events happen to our family...
What do YOU collect?
