but...no darned use!?!
I must have bought this coffee pot
over 40 years ago......
it cost quite a lot (even in those days!)
It moved with me....
and I have taken it down and dusted it...
but never used it!
"...the gold might get scratched...
the lid might get dropped and broken....."
So it has sat on the top of the china cupboard
.......probably hardly looked at
and certainly never used!
My mother went to a pottery class
about 35 years ago.
She couldn't use the wheel properly
because of a bad back.
I was given 3 of the things she made
(a bowl and 2 little jugs)
She will be embarressed that I am showing this!
In fact she gave them to me with a joke...
"These are precious and should be passed down
through the generations!"
Hubby was heard to mutter
"As soon as possible!"
A couple of years ago....
my son asked for one little jug that I always
filled with flowers.....
......and I have often seen it,
full of wild flowers in the centre of their kitchen table!
I use the the bowl and little jug she made...
all the time....
and remember ..... the creator
I have been feeling rather sorry for myself recently
.... with this disability,
I cannot get out and about the way I did.........
I have put on weight
as I am unable to walk far or excercise
and I know I have 'let myself go'
I see those I know....dressed up beautifully....
wearing lovely makeup
and striding out about their business!
and I, sometimes, feel resentful
and think of all I have lost
Seeing Mum's bowl this morning
made me stop and think...
I am joining......Sunny Simple Sunday
