What will be left?

I had to move everything in my living room closet/storage room so the maintenance department could get to the floor hatch that leads to my crawl space.

In the back I pulled out a large plastic storage bin, a cardboard box and a suitcase. The bin and the suitcase were marked "Mom and Dad". The cardboard box was labeled" "Pop's Army things."

Two lives distilled down to three storage boxes.

It made me wonder what I would leave - books, ones I've read, ones I've written?
Or would I leave good memories - memories in the hearts of people I've touched.

Only time will tell.
