I'm a very sentimental person. I save things that remind me of the people I love. It can be a bottle, a piece of cloth, a vase, a pin, a lovely necklace or photographs.
Recently, I gathered a collection of black and white photographs of my mother and grandmothers to display on one of my kitchen shelves. I call it my "Mothers Day shelf".
When I look at my Mother's Day shelf, I am reminded of many things. My grandmothers. The comfort of her voice, warm hugs, sound advice and long stories. Oh, the stories. I wish I had recordings of all of them so I could listen to them over and over. Memories.....
The sound of a door closing
Pictures on a wall
Chenille bedspreads and handmade quilts
Cakes made "from scratch"
Homemade biscuits with honey
Watching soap operas
The list is endless. The memories are priceless. I cherish every one of them.
Happy Mother's Day!
