Grandma’s teaspoons

During my mom’s last visit, she gifted me with several of my grandma’s teaspoons. There is a special feeling associated with using these spoons and something comforting about possessing an item that has been used by so many of my family members over the years. One day my daughter will stir her coffee or eat her yogurt with these spoons, and an invisible line will connect her to her great-grandmother, whom she wasn’t able to meet. Treasured objects, like these teaspoons, carry more significance than just simple function. They are a way to keep the past with us, a way to remember with fondness those who are no longer here physically, but who are always connected to us in spirit.
