Lunchbox Memories


Growing up I was the one that always helped mom with after dinner clean up. Part of my job was to make my dad's lunch. This lunchbox was one of his originals. It was placed on the basement shelf at some point and replaced with the same kind except the new one was plastic. I asked my mom if I could have his old metal lunchbox and she gladly passed it on to me. My sister in law decorated it for me and made a recipe box. (Thanks, Kelly!! You did a great job)!!

grace and peace,

What a neat idea. Such a great way to honor those special memories. My dad always smoked a pipe and I have this ratty zip up jacket of his that he wore when he was working out in the yard. It's never been washed since he died about 5 years ago and it still smells like him. I absolutely treasure it.
