My Little Red Velvet Coin Purse
Image via WikipediaI remember opening up my purse and pulling out one coin at a time and studying the design. I remember showing my best friend my collection. And I remember when Mommom and Granddaddy visited for the Christmas Holidays, and how he would sit down with my sister and me and divvy out coins from their latest trips. It was a big deal in my family.
Today, the little purse is filled with 14 coins mostly from European countries. I still love the coins from England prominently displaying the Queen's face.
The coins are tarnished and dull now, sort of like, its owner. They represent a bygone era and remind me of a pleasant childhood memory.
And it makes me wonder what my children will hold dear from their childhoods?
