I had to go to the china cabinet today to get a dish I wanted to use...
And then it hit me...
During all the years of my marriage, we had our lovely Waterford crystal displayed for all to see, but seldom used.
It moved me terribly.. what the F was I saving the crystal for..why did we not use it for us?
Why did we have it if we weren't going to use it, enjoy it.. and now it sits and collects dust, only handled for a holiday dinner, or the biannual cleaning..pffft!
So I grabbed one of the crystal glass, filled it with Hershey's choc syrup and skin milk, took a plain old spoon out and stirred that baby.. without a care how hard or rigorous I stirred against the crystal..till there were a smooth distribution of the chocolate syrup.
And then I toasted my dear late husband... and whispered.. why didn't we use the good crystal more often sweetheart!
