A memory deeply planted in your mind may not surface often however, most memories are jogged when you look at a photo of someone.
For me sometimes it is looking at the bottom of a tea cup and saucer,
I can remember her smile.

A little girl memory takes me back a number of years to a wedding shower that was being held for a cousin. I listened to my aunts talk about gifting her tea cups and it wouldn’t be a shower without receiving a tea cup. Back then each time you had a birthday or wedding shower the gift was a tea cup and saucer. I don’t know the tradition and it was something I never asked about it was just so.
I can remember her ways.

Today I took down this tea cup and saucer that my aunt Myrtle gave me a few years ago before she passed away. I remember her going to the china cabinet and taking this one out. I also remember her 75th wedding anniversary party, everyone had a different tea cup and saucer from my Aunt’s collection, the guests numbered just over 200. That was quite a collection.
I can remember her advice.

Tea cup and saucer memories, some of the best.

Thanks for joining me in my memories.  Do you hold something close to your heart as a memory?

Until the next time I can make you smile,
