whole world in his hands
A friend of mine up and moved to Alaska literally overnight and he left all of his earthly possessions behind. Among those was this globe that he said I could have. He received it for Christmas one year in the early 1950's and was disappointed. I loved it SO much that I gave it away to another friend that I knew would NOT be disappointed. I was right, finally this old world has a loving home! Actually, it has had two of them. This is what I kept along with the satisfaction of knowing that I had rescued this world and put it in loving hands where it is very much appreciated.
