FMF Writing Prompt—View

This may be a stretch of the word this week, but here it goes:

Do you ever buy things because when you view them in your home it makes you think of someone special? This happened this week-end with a set of black bear salt & pepper shakers I saw at a local gift shop. They reminded me so of the cute bear s&p shakers Mom had on her kitchen table. Our sister asked for them after Mom died because they were together when she bought them. They were special to her.

I was with my daughter and son-in-law when I saw these little shakers. When she viewed inside the box I was holding and saw them, she remembered Moms as well. So I purchased these, to my daughter’s delight.

I wonder, if one day to come, she may say the same thing I heard my sister say, “I’d like to have these little bear shakers. Mom & I were together when she bought them.”

Ahhhh…the circle of life.

  1. Here at the place of final light,
    here in the final lane of life,
    I sometimes wonder how I might
    make more real how I view my wife.
    To everyone spouse is reflection
    in part, of self and of desire,
    but there may be a new direction,
    seen from dying, to inspire
    what and whom she may become
    in my absence, on her own,
    with others she may walk among;
    though this cannot be fully known,
    perhaps, if seen with clearer eyes,
    I may witness her future rise.
