This brought me to a thought of looking at the multiple 'Good China' sets that mum has stored away in cupboards. I would look at them as she would take them out, just to look at mind you, and I she would admire every plate and make a place setting showing how beautiful it looked as if it belonged in a department store window.
I looked in adoration as a child, thinking, wow, how beautiful.
I remembered asking mum, "When are we going to use these?"
Mum Replied, "They are for visitors."
I was satisfied with that comment as a child, but I waited for these visitors, and some visitors would come for dinner, but alas the 'Good China' never was taken from the cupboard.
These visitors were obviously not good enough for the 'Good China'.
Now I have my own home and have the extra luxuries of having 'Good China, Crystal and table settings', I have them always on hand.
Before I had my little Mottsters, every night my husband and I would dine on the 'Good China' and I still use Waterford to drink Champagne. Why not??
If you and your family are not good enough for the 'Good China', Who is????
I am sure allot of people will remember the 'Good China' tales from their mum, something that always gives me a smile thinking today is a great day to live. Everyday is special, EVERYDAY!
