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. That is so sweet! I know I have some things I don't want to get gone either. I had a special friend, Dean, and he is not with us anymore. He has gone on to be with the Lord. I have some of his things and I will not part with them "voluntarily". I am sentimental about certain things. I know those things don't mean anything to others but I care very deeply about them. Love, Ms. Nancy
