"Don't save something for a special occasion. Every day of your life is a special occasion."
~President Thomas S. Monson
As I found a home for the prized set of china dishes, I made a mental note to have a luncheon with my grandma using these new dishes. Despite using the dishes with my own family a couple of times since the fall, I still kept meaning to host a luncheon. A few weeks ago, while realizing my spring calendar was quickly filling up, I knew I couldn't put off a luncheon anymore. Life wasn't going to slow down any, so I may as well fit it in where I could.
While trying to figure out the wording for the invitation, a phrase came to my mind. It encompassed all I wanted to honor at the luncheon.
"From Whence We Came."
Do you LOVE the gold "silverware"? I DO!!!
A few of us loved ones, joined together by blood and marriage, sat around the table talking, laughing, and crying as we shared memories of special times, and beloved items.
"How delighted our loved ones would have been; to see, hear and feel of the influence they had on our lives."
Without a doubt, I believe my loved ones were delighted to see a few of their posterity honor them.
