Finer Things

PHOTO PROMPT © ROCHELLE WISOFF-FIELDS

Madge was a hoarder. Not the type of hoarder that boosts the ratings of reality TV, but as she’d declare, “Darling, I am a collector of fine things.”

After she passed, Sarah, her youngest daughter, drew the short straw that decided who would tackle the task of sorting through ‘mom’s junk’.

“Have fun Sarah-Bear,” they taunted as they left.

It wasn’t long before Sarah discovered a treasure trove of family memorabilia: hand-made cards, baby teeth, locks of hair, photographs. Unable to part with any of it, Sarah loaded her car.

Apparently, collecting fine things runs in the family.
