Feeling a bit sad :(

I've been doing some major cleaning and in my storage room found a box sealed up with some of my ^Misty's^ toys. I've looked at the box for the last couple of weeks and just opened it today. These were well used and loved toys. Even a couple of my slippers that she used to put into her toybox. My ^Misty^ has been gone since 2005. I have really mixed emotions as to what to do with the box. Should I keep the toys (they are pretty ragged) or just get rid of them? Would I be a bad mother if I got rid of them. Both Teddy and Elliott have plenty of toys and there toys aren't in any shape to be donated.....Linda

I have saved some stuff. I have her fleece jacket on a stuffed animal I sleep with (don't laugh). I have saved bowls and some sweaters.

((((Linda))))) It's hard to go through those memories of our furangels.  I have a few things from some of my furangels that I have had for many years.  They don't take up much room and I can't just can't part with them yet. I makes me sad to look at the ones I have too. It's up to you if you want to toss them out, but don't do it until you are sure you want to.

Thanks for your input. I definetly have saved some stuff, but there are things that are chewed apart. The most important thing I have is ^Misty^ in my heart and always will.
