In the last post I related my story of my close friend who – along with her sister – was charged with cleaning out her parents’ home after their deaths just eight weeks apart from each other. While it was a grueling process, the women were able to complete it with honor and each came home with pieces that would serve as remembrances of their childhood home. My friend chose a grandfather clock that belonged to her father and once I saw it in her house I knew that I wanted something equally lovely for my own home; and something that would forever remind my kids of the place where they spent their childhood.
My search for a grandfather clock was much easier and much more pleasant than I anticipated. Lucky for me, the Internet has offered a whole new world of convenience when it comes to finding clocks of all kinds. I was able to logon and within moments I was browsing through truly unbelievable selections of grandfather clocks – from traditional to contemporary and even some really interesting and different clocks.
I was able to find a traditional style grandfather clock that fits perfectly in my home in terms of size and style. And best of all I know that for many years to come my kids will remember this grandfather clock that stood in their childhood home. Hopefully it will bring back wonderful memories for them some day as it has for my friend. And hopefully they will carry on the tradition by having a grandfather clock in their home for their own families.
