Today I found something which made me really smile from my childhood. It is a button from my favourite coat which I wore as a child, about the age of 5.
It is the size of my thumb nail, and dirty from having lying around in an old button box, but it is something I am going to make into as it holds sentimental value. To think that my Mother kept it all these years just made me feel like I had gotten a little hug from her even though she has been in heaven for nearly 9 years now.
This button would tell of a time when I used to run in from playing and give both my Mum and Step-dad huge hugs. It would tell of times when I scraped my knees, and made mud pies inside the glass house that used to be at the front of the house where I grew up.
