To decide what to do with a certain piece of paper my mother, my unsentimental, "don't hold on to things" mother, had kept.
It is a small, approx. 4" x 6", piece of paper. After nearly 56 years, it is now a bit discolored and yellow. On it, there are a few lines drawn in blue ink.
At the bottom of the piece of paper, my mother has written: "Scribbled by Bless, with her father's pen, seated on father's desk" and dated. I had been a few months old. Apparently, my first masterpiece! She had preserved it in my baby book.
To keep, or not to keep. That is the question.
