Hankies Come in Handy
Hankies. Old-fashioned relics these days, so of course, I collect them when I come across them.
I save them in a box. When I go to a memorial service, I take an extra along in case someone needs one. I give them to people when they are sad.
I was at a funeral a few years ago, sitting by a friend. Her dad had died too recently for her to hold it together during a funeral. She started crying, hard. Hankie to the rescue. I pulled it outta my pocket and she put it to use. Afterward, I told her it was hers to keep.
My mom died last week. Yesterday, I got a card from that friend. Inside were these 3 beautiful hankies. They belonged to her husband's grandmother. She wants me and the girls to have them at the memorial service. We will use them. Thanks, thoughtful friend.
