My Brother’s Hammer…
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Today, I needed a hammer. I went to ‘my tool drawer’, took a hammer out… laid it on the countertop.

I closed the drawer back… stood there, remembering where I got the hammer. It’s stainless steel, and on one side has the initial ‘E’… on the other side, initial ‘N’.

It’s a homemade hammer, and it was given to me with love… years ago. I’ve always treasured the stainless steel hammer. I used to have a stainless steel flower that I also, treasured. Both hammer, flower were made by the same person.

That same person made a stainless steel grill that I always admired. He made it for his step-father, our mother. It was a wonderful grill.

The hammer, and flower were in the housefire where we lost all in it. I found the hammer… but, the flower never was found. I treasured this hammer even more.

I used the hammer, put it straight back up… so, it can never become lost. Why? Because it is my brother’s hammer… he gave it to me.

  1. The memories we find attached to everyday objects that become more and more precious with time! 🙂

    I treasure my video tapes and the memories they contain even though events over the past 23 years have been stained by treachery and broken trust.

    I am glad you have a good memory my friend! 🙂

    Love and hugs!

    Prenin.
