Well, hello there! Aren't you just the cutest thing! All bright and shiny, fresh from the store shelf. I am sure she debated long and hard, trying to decide which one of you to bring home. Welcome to the family.
want to just tell you a little bit about what you have been bought
into. See, this is an exclusive collection The Mommy has. Some of us are
newer...some of us have been here for years and a few of us are even
older than she is. It is true that a couple of us get used more often
than the rest...but we all have a special story about how we got here.
If you look close you will see some chips and a couple cracks. A few of
us have had handles glued back on and some are completely
retired...content to observe the daily comings and goings from the
display hooks above the door.
That is where I am heading soon...
don't worry about me...I am looking forward to it! I have served The
Mommy for years, and The Grandmother for many years before that...it has
been a good life and I am ready to rest. I am becoming to fragile for
everyday use and will most likely be kept only for certain moments when
she is needing an extra connection to memory.
See, that is our
function...we are silent witnesses to memory. It is a huge
responsibility you are taking on. You will be called upon many times
over the coming years. You will be present for countless intimate
conversations. You will hear laughter and see tears. You will be reached
for when the nights have been long and The Mommy needs a pick me up.
She will entrust you with the small hands of her children when they are
ill, filling you with an endless supply of warm and healing creations. I
guarantee there will be countless late nights and early mornings. You
may be tempted to feel resentful when she has to rush off and leaves you
on the counter, mostly full...having completely forgotten to at least
empty your carefully protected contents into one of the Takeaways. But
She will return.
Stay strong and do your job
well. Take care of this little family. You were specially chosen and
will be well loved for many years to come.
