Legacy

You can see my grandniece twins having fun hiding under this round oak table at my mother's (the twins great grandmother) house.  Hearing them giggle and play, reminded me of my childhood days.  I loved to play with my big sister (the twins grandmother) under this very same table.  Crawling between the posts, pretending it was a carousel, or just hanging out in my own little world-this table provided hours of entertainment.  It is an antique that was purchased from an old hotel by my father about 55 years ago.  I always thought it would be neat if the top would rotate like a lazy susan.  It almost looked like it was designed for just that very purpose.  Many hours of conversation have taken place around this round table, many stories told, many games played and when this table makes it way to my sisters house, the legacy will continue... which is a  blessing indeed!

That is a really sweet picture Nancy.
I have a few pieces of furniture from family members who lived many years ago. I love thinking that the things they loved and touched are still a part of our family.
Great post!

Hi Linda, thanks for stopping by. I blog so rarely that I thought I would have ZERO comments. I'm like you, I also will post this to FB and share with my hometown buddies and family. I like this blogging spot and I hope I can keep it going.

I love the thought of the big round table being "touched" by loved ones. The next time I'm at mom's, I want to just rub my hand along the edge and just think about all the hands that have done exactly the same...a connection that will be a blessing indeed!

My prayers for your dad continue. I hope the place on his arm will continue to heal and that he will get to come home soon. There is no place like home!

I check often to be sure and see if you have a new post - and then I saw it on FB instead. I wish I could link my posts on FB, but being private, it would do not good. I really hate having to still be private.

What fun it looks like under Great-grandma's table - isn't it neat how twins automatically have a playmate?

I agree Dawn, it is neat to always have a playmate. They are interacting with each other more now and are so aware of what the other is doing. I bet tattle telling is just around the corner. Blessings to you and your grands.

Hello Ol' friend,
(I mean ol' in the sense of blogging years not age). It's been ages. I love this post--love that it ties a piece of furniture to your life and the life of those following and doing the same things. I love that about life and the little blessings God gives us to take care of while we're here.

Its great to hear from you Tom and I'm looking forward to hearing all about your grand baby in a few months. My table doesn't have as much of a story as your table but who knows...it may in the years to come. Blessings to you my friend!

Nancy,
I'm just writing here to say Merry Christmas. We miss you in the blogosphere, but I'm sure you are encourageing many people through facebook. Who knows I may eve join Julie and open an account, but so far it's still me and my brown-paper blog.

By the way, you may want to delete that foreign spam above. I've had some of those show up and they tend not to be the sort of content that deserve "air time" at Daily Blessings.
