The other day I was making my boys hot chocolate and I pulled some mugs out of my cupboard...
The three that I pulled down ALL had significant meaning to me.
The first one was my grandma's mug.
My brothers and I got it for her when we were young. We moved in with my grandma when I was 7, so my mom could help take care of her. We called her "GramCracker" and she let us... because it made us laugh. She would sit and sip hot tea out of this mug all the time. When my mom passed away, I claimed the mug as mine.
It's a Batman mug from McDonald's.We were poor college students and he tried to impress me... by paying money for that mug.
Did I mention it was from McDonald's?
Yeah... McDonald's and then the batting cages. It wasn't the best date I have ever been on...but did get this cool mug! lol.
The third one I received my first year of teaching.
It was from a little autistic boy I had in my class. He was a wonderful artist! His dad had designed the label on the mug. The little boy was SO proud of his dad's work! ...and I was proud to be the recipient of it!
Who knew drinking hot chocolate would bring up so many memories??
Do you have anything that sparks memories like this for you??
