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.
