Let's see....I guess it would have been three months, two weeks and one day ago that my beloved husband gave me this porcelain teapot and honey pot. It has tiny bumble bees on it.
There was also a spoon rest...
And...a single teacup and saucer...
Some years back I started using the anniversary gift list when searching for an anniversary gift for my beloved. It has put me on many fun and interesting paths and I have found some neat things that I would not have considered for him otherwise. The 18th year is porcelain.
So...for my 18th anniversary, my dearest husband gave to me something that he knew I would enjoy. I love my bumble bee teacup, when I hold it in my hands, steaming with tea or coffee, I have the privilege of remembering the celebration of our 18th year of marriage. I get to remember our dinner that he picked out so carefully just for me. I get to remember an evening of walking and talking with my hand in his.
Every time the swirling steam rises above the little yellow and white cup, I feel the warmth of his hand in mine and I am thankful for our 18 years together and I selfishly plead with the Lord that we will have at least 18 more.
