Some of the memories that I treasure the most are having coffee with my mother in law when we visited. The one thing that was a real treat for me was drinking it out of her coffee cups. They were made of china, but so dainty and beautiful.
The idea of drinking coffee out of a heavy mug has never appealed to me. Don’t know why, but I still like coffee out of a nice coffee cup.
So when my mother-in-law passed away, I was asked if there was anything that I would like to have to remember her by. Well of course, it was the 4 coffee cups and 1 saucer that she had left from what I am sure was once a beautiful set.
Because they are so fragile, I rarely take them out and actually use them. But the other day, I decided to take one out and have a cup of coffee in her honor.
When I drink coffee from this cup I remember her beauty, love of family and genuine goodness. What do you have in your home that brings back beautiful memories?
