So almost five years ago we lost our beautiful baby girl. It's been a long road of grief and healing, but we've made it through. My question is, what do I do with all the momentos I had saved that don't necessarily have that much sentimental value? What I mean is, I have compiled all the things that are very important to me in a large scrapbook, plus I have a box of things I would never part with - the blanket she was wrapped in, the teddy bear from her funeral, etc. What I am struggling with are the things that don't necessarily fit my lifestyle...lots of crystal angels figurines, etc, that came with flowers, hundreds of cards, and so on. At first I clung to these and saved everything because it was all we had of her, but now I am feeling like they are no longer serving a purpose and are just collecting dust in a box. Does anybody have any ideas/advice? I guess I am really feeling ready to let this stuff go, but then a little part of me wonders if I will regret getting rid of it. But then I go back to the fact that in all other areas of my life, I have simplified and decluttered, so it feels odd to have boxes of things sitting around that I know I will never display or use. Thanks so much!
