when I turned and looked into our china cabinet.
china that DH buys for me now. I smiled as I thought of all
the love in that china cabinet.
I looked a little closer at the salt and pepper shakers and ....
wondered .....where in the world did I get those? After a few
minutes of thinking about it, I'm sure I got them on vacation at
Helen, Georgia, over twenty years ago! But I don't remember
actually buying them or the store I bought them in. They have
been stored behind glass like this for over twenty years. I've
never used them. I'm sure it was because I was raising two
very active little boys and they were safer in the china cabinet.
Time to start using my treasures! So I took out the salt and
pepper shakers and decided to put them in action! But where?
I filled them with salt and pepper and put them right on
the gathering room table! Beautiful!
After looking at them, maybe they are too big for the small
table. I moved them to the counter where we set our
dishes and fix our plates, now. Yes, a better fit.
These are only salt and pepper shakers. A simple thing. But
time is short and we shouldn't keep our personal treasures
behind glass. Our real treasures are the people we love.
We should hug them every minute we can! Laugh all the
time! And smile when we use our pretty salt and pepper
Have a great week!
