Story of the Pot Holders
On New Years Eve I brought a hot dish to my friend "J's" house. Two days later I realized I didn't have any pot holders...not a good thing when something needs to come out of the oven (dish towels work in an emergency). I sent a text to a different friend (whose house we were at on NY Day) only to find out that I hadn't brought them there.
It might have taken a day or two to realize that I had left them at "J's". I sent a text to her asking if they were there. She replied that yes, they were and she had been wondering whose home they belonged to. I then told her that I would tell her to just toss them in the trash but they were the only two I owned. However, we never seemed to connect to get them back. In the meantime I found a Christmas one that my MIL had gotten me.
On the night of the Freebie Jewelry Party, our friends had some kitchen items they were giving away and my friend "J" comes bouncing in the room waving a handful of potholder saying "look what I got for you!"
I came home with 6 new potholders. They are not my color or style, but they're now mine and they will remind me of a beautiful lady who graced this world with her presence and changed so many lives.
Do you have something in your home that is a beautiful memory or tribute of someone you love?
