HiJUDITH; a lovely story; thanksfor sharing it!
n Response to Ugly, Old Cookie Jar:
My mother had an old black cookie jar that she had received as a wedding gift in the 1944. I always hated cookies that had been in that cookie jar because they had a certain "taste" that I didn't like. Several years ago my mother asked me if I'd like to have her cookie jar when she passed away. I told her that I'd be glad to have her cookie jar when she was gone but not before. Inside I was cringing at the idea of cookies from that old jar. Mom passed away a year ago and now that cookie jar is a prized possesion. She received that jar at a wonderful time of her life, she placed her homemade cookies in that jar with love for her family, and she past it down to me with love. That old ugly jar is now beautiful to me!
