sweet memory doodles
sometimes remembering through doodles can be so sweet.
i was 8. double pneumonia and in the hospital for a week. our uncle Harry Damato and his wonderful wife, Catherine, brought this puzzle gift that i just treasured. so delighted with all the colors that made up our United States!
our Uncle Harry is in heaven now, but when i remember this gift i am again grateful for him and his big heart, his humor, and his loving soul.
just shared this memory with Catherine recently, and she (90+) told me she remembers when they bought that puzzle for me, and how she was trying to find just the right gift for a second-grader. =)
it was Perfect.
