My Grandma Norma loved beautiful things.
She didn’t have a lot.
She and Grandpa were married during the depression and did their best to make a beautiful home for my mom and her sister.
When my mom was old enough to get a job, she saw this beautiful set of china and bought it for her mom. I love that! She was thinking about something her mom would like to have, and got it for her.
When I got my first job, I don’t remember thinking about my mom, except that she wouldn’t have to buy me school clothes anymore.
Years ago my mom invited me and my Darlin over for dinner. Just us two with my mom and dad. It was so special. She served dinner on these dishes. They felt very light weight and delicate. I thought, if my mom ever gives these to me, they will never be eaten on again. I was so afraid they would break.
Well, she did give them to me!
They are on display in my china hutch.They mean so much to me, because she bought them for her mom with money from her first job!
There are so many stories that are associated with the things we have in our lives. Don’t forget to tell the stories to those you love, and especially to someone who might eventually have the things in their home.
They can pass the item down to their kids along with the story!
Happy Family History Friday! Love, Joy
