Fond memories of days gone by...

I had posted this on a friend's blog, but I thought I should post it here too:
Good things do come back to you! You gave a very thoughtful gift to your mother, and now you have it to enjoy, for many wonderful memories!
I know what this means...I had reupholstered a vintage wooden chair for my mother in law when she had asked me one time.
Later, when I came across a wooden antique footstool, I cleaned it up, made a cushion on top, and upholstered it to match her chair. My hubby and I gave this to his parents on their anniversary. This was one of the few times I saw her cry, and she was at a loss for words!
When she was in poor health, in her later years, she gave us the chair and stool. She died not too long afterward. These I will never part with....
