Hi Nellie, "You made my day, I am so happy this sparked a memory for you. I'm hoping it also brought you a smile and thanks for sharing this beautiful story. It is exactly what I hope this Question of the Day can do for us. emoticon emoticon emoticon

You spurred a memory. For years, I had a cedar chest that was my mother's hope chest. It was the first gift my father gave to her when they became engaged. When I moved a couple of years ago, I gave it to my daughter with whom I now live since she had been looking at it longingly for quite a while.

Looking back this is a funny question, because I don't have a Treasure Box either. What I do have is a Blanket Chest that was my Grandmothers. Inside the chest is my baptism gown and some baby shoes and a baby quilt and family pictures.I should get organized and gather all old family mementos emoticon and place everything in the blanket chest. Then, everything will be in one place. Wouldn't that be a good project?

My answer is like Carol. Lots of treasures but no box with childhood memories.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Do you have a Treasure Chest or a Treasure Box with memorabilia from your childhood? Do you know what is inside? emoticon
