Dear Diary....

While traveling to visit my mom this weekend, I stopped at one of my favorite haunts along the way to see if I could score some treasures.   In one booth there lay a very old and worn diary with the lock latch cut off.  Now, I'll be the first to lay it out there that I am a nosy little cuss and I couldn't resist opening and reading a bit!  I do find myself wondering how that person would feel knowing that their private (or so they thought) thoughts and feelings are now laid out for everyone to see.  I also wonder why any family member would get rid of such a treasure.  Her entries, from way back in 1938 and 1939 were so honest and sweet.  I couldn't help but snap a few pictures....
Wow...don't we all want this??
I found it so sweet that she longed for a nice home and wrote that in her diary...

As I turned to the back cover, I read this....very true, I think!  What are you sending out to the lives of others that may come back into yours??


  1. I love your new treasure, Karen!! And I really enjoy getting your posts emailed to me each time you write one. You truly have a wonderful blog and a great writing voice!!
