Things Worth Keeping

With the move to China on my mind, I find myself evaluating my (far too numerous) possessions and making a mental checklist of things to sell, things to give away, and things to keep. In the Things to Keep category, there are things to bring with us and things to store in Canada until we return.

It’s an interesting process, and one that brings with it a few insights about myself and what I consider to be important.

So we’ll sell the car and some furniture, give away plants, clothing and knick knacks, leave the cat with Mom for safe keeping, but keep the piano, old books and photographs, and the quilt my grandmother made me.

Some things are too precious not to keep.
