Packing up all her family’s belongings has gotten easier when it is time to move on. Each time the crates are a little lighter as they sell more and more things to scrape by. The Depression has hit most families in the area hard, but her family seems to feel it more than most. Looking around the empty house and holding her head high, Gladys squares her shoulders and heads out the door. The fate of most seems grim, but she knows that there is one item, simple as it may be, that will always be more important than money. It is the towel Gladys’s mother lovingly stitched with her new monogram as she helped her prepare her wedding trunk. This towel, full of love and memories, will never leave her possession.
