Fix—for FMF

What a fun word. Or rather what fun, dear memories it conjures up for me.

My father-in-law was a real fix-it man. Born in 1912, he was a child of the Great Depression. He sure knew how to fix things, and make needed/wanted household items from scraps in his shop. He kept everything knowing he made need it for a project someday.

I loved his shop and would spend time with him in it watching, listening and chatting with him. It was neat & tidy—a place for everything and everything in its place.

He went home to be with The Lord many years ago at the grand old age of 98.

Memories of him linger in our hearts and homes as we still enjoy the many things he made for the necessity of our homes so long ago. They are dear to our hearts.

  1. What beautiful memories! I’m so glad we have memories of those who have gone before, to keep them alive in our hearts! And we will see them again one day. Blessings to you!

  2. What a heartwarming post of a very dear man in your life.
    My sweet man sounds like him.
    And my Daddy was born in 1912! He was a special man as well!
    Such treasures we have and had in our lives. Thank you for reminding me.
    Happy week to you my friend!

    • Well, I am so happy you enjoyed this little post, Nancy! Isn’t it grand to have such great fix-it men around? 🙂 When Granddad and Grandmom would come visit us, I had to have a list of fix-it things for him to do! Treasures indeed.

  3. Treasured memories for sure, as our dear elders grew up in a time and age when they had to make do, or do without. We have no idea really about that today. So much we have lost with their passing. Thankful for their special memories though!

    • You know, Marilyn, I don’t think they would even recognize our world these days. ☹️ I would be real concerned if I didn’t know what God can do. Sending Valentine hugs and love to you.
