Lost in Translation’s Thursday’s Special
the prompt this week is
Traces of the Past
This is my gramma’s rocker.
It was given to her by my grandfather when she was pregnant with my mother.
Gramma rocked her children and her grandchildren in this chair.
When she died it was given to my mother who rocked her grandchildren in it.
When my mother died the chair became mine.
I have rocked all my catkids in it.
This year the chair is 99 years old.
It will always be “Gramma’s rocker”.

Oh, I love that chair! We have a highchair that gets passed down. (My kids had to go to grandma’s to use it.)

There is a highchair in our family, too. My brother’s and I sat in it and my brother’s kids and then his grandkids and now his great-grands. It has seen a lot of life.
It’s wonderful to have those things that keep our loved ones near and dear.
Hope you are enjoying the A to Z month long challenge
I have enjoyed the challenge again year. It’s fun to come up with something different, yet within the parameters of the challenge, every day.
My daughter has the rocker my mother gave me when I was pregnant with my oldest child. She now has that rocker and it is almost an antique.
I think few people keep family things anymore. We are a throw it away society. I am glad your rocker has a loving home.
A love that you have something passed down and loved through your history. If that chair could talk… ❤ ❤
If it could talk we would probably want to shush it. Lots of secrets shared while in that chair.
Ooh. This sounds g.o.o.d. 🙂
I always wanted to have a nice rocker like this one! Definitely a thing to be treasured. Thank you for the entry, Patricia.
It is very special. Sadly there is no one who values it like I do so when I’m gone I guess the chair will have a new family.
Your chair has witnessed so much love.
Yes, it has. Lots of laughter and some tears.
