Sylvia dumped the contents of the drawer in the box and put them aside to be tossed into the rubbish bin.
Mandy entered the kitchen with a box of her own and looked over Sylvia’s box curiously, “ have you already sorted out these things Sylvie?”
“Oh it’s just junk and I’ll toss it in the dumpster on my way out”, Sylvia said nonchalantly and went on clearing out more stuff from the drawers in the living room of their late mother’s home.
“Oh no Sylvie, this is not junk, mom collected each and every thing with care and she had a purpose for them all”
“Just look at this card, I made it for her in kindergarten on Mother’s Day and remember this fridge magnet that we bought when we went to Yellow stone park a long time ago”.
Both sisters sat on the floor, going through the box which contained so many memories disguised as junk.
