My Little Treasures

These teacups once belonged to my grandmother.  I remember when I was a little girl, I would look up at them through the glass cabinet that she used to keep them in.  They were so fancy  and carefully placed; I dare not touch them.  I would describe the teacups in the same way I would describe my grandmother: charming, strong, yet delicate.  My grandmother loved these beautiful little cups and brought them out proudly whenever she entertained guests.

She has since passed on and I now keep these little treasures proudly in my cabinets.  And on special occasions, as well as ordinary days like this, I'll drink a cup of tea and feel closer to my grandmother with every sip.

Do any of you keep a cherished item from a loved one who has passed on?  What is it and what memories does it hold for you?  I'd love to hear your stories.

Thanks everyone...
