“memento.” Use it anywhere in your post or make it the theme of your
post. Have fun!
I try not to keep lots of mementos. I'm trying not to have lots of clutter in the house and keeping lots of mementos can add to that. When my Mum had to be admitted to a nursing home I had to clear out her home. She had lots of china pigs. Shelves of them. Plus clowns. Not to mention lots of other knick knacks. Initially I couldn't bring myself to get rid of them so we stored them in the loft. After she had passed away we started to deal with Mum's stuff. Most of the pigs went to a summer fete at the school where I worked. Along with many of the clowns. I've kept a couple of the clowns which were actually quite expensive china ones. The only pigs I kept were 3 little pink ones. They're really small and I often carry one of them around with me.
Of course I don't need a memento to remember Mum but I like having something of hers with me.
