Monday Memories #5


"It's funny how many different things trigger memories for us as we grow older, isn't it? Maybe you can share a story of one of your grandparents or any relative that holds a special place in your heart."

Just this morning when my husband, my daughter and I are about to go out for breakfast, I saw my land lady's coffee cup on top of the bench under the mango tree where she always sit in the morning and in the afternoon to have a cup of coffee or two. It was a white ceramic cup with flower details and blue lining on the rim. The same ceramic cup my mother used to make her coffee as well. My mother just love collecting mugs, glasses, plates, figurines and pictures. Although we already know that she love to make collections of those things, my siblings and I were still surprised to see all of those when she passed away. He has a huge collection. We just don't know what to do with those collections, I mean who or where we will keep them. They are precious to us because they are my mother's. A lot of memories are on her things. It's just a pity that today, some of her collections especially the display cabinet was already damaged. Nostalgic..

I can totally relate to this post. My precious mother went back to her Lord 2 1/2 years ago and almost everything reminds me of her. She was such a good mother and best friend and she taught me to sew and craft and made it all so fun and rewarding (she is greatly missed). My mother loved to collect teapots and dishes and many other things...
I'm so happy you stopped by to follow my blog. I am of course following you back.
See ya next post!

I understand. Logically we know we should but emotionally it can be so hard to part with such things.

Finally I am finding a bit of time to get around and leave some comments. This was such a sweet post in tribute to your mother. My own mother, also now in the spirit world, loved to collect cups and saucers. My sister now has her collection on display in her china cabinet. I have her dishes we ate on every day, that she purchased piece by piece as she could afford them. They have pink wild roses on the edges, and I love them! It's funny how strongly we feel the connection to our mothers in the things that they also held dear! Thank you for sharing with us on Monday Memories, I appreciate you!
