My Steamer Trunk Memory

FAT Cupid Tin Trade

The tin trade I made for FAT led me back to thinking about the first time my hubby and I took a cruise. It was with our son's friends from his school. They owned their own business - a land developer. I remember the entourage he took with him on his business trip. His banker and financier and wives were along.

The ironic thing - last week i really felt impressed to call his wife to talk to her. They had been going through some awful times. BUT i didn't, i just blew it off and got busy in other stuff.

Just a few minutes ago my son came to me and said, "Mom Lee's dad killed himself." Needless to say I have been brought down to my knees again. I can't imagine what this young man is feeling - their only child. And his wife had shared they were high school sweethearts. Honestly I am in shock.

Do you remember seeing pics of the old steamer trunks they used for traveling long ago? That is what I did this trade in memory of except it is an Altoids tin. Another recycled project.

And one last thing, while reading my daily Bible scripture today the verse to think on was Proverbs 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

I love the idea of your "steamer trunk". Conjures up images of exotic travel and romance...a perfect choice for the Cupid trade.
I can feel the pain you are experiencing right now. I'm sending you healing hugs...and prayers.
