I thought I would share a few of my mugs – or some of the stories behind the mugs. I have never been a “mug collector” but I do enjoy the memories behind the mugs I do have. If you haven’t taken a picture of your favorite mug – give it a try….you’ll probably enjoy thinking back on “where in the world did this one come from!?!”
Again, I apologize for the pitiful photography – you’d think a picture of a mug would be easy. But, these mugs are from my days as a Longaberger consultant. Back in the day, I had quite a passion (maybe not the best word) for Longaberger – and their baskets. I even had the Longaberger cradle (a huge basket on rockers) that all three of my children spent most of the earliest sleeping hours in!!
Then I became a consultant. I thought my love of the products would somehow make me a tremendous “salesman”! HA In actuality, selling and having the business not only truly sucked the fun out of it all for me…..I really don’t even enjoy the baskets I still have any more. Sad, really. But, these mugs are awesome.
This mug is from one of my dearest friends. The line inside says “The bonds we have are everlasting…” and I’m so glad that is true because she has moved (twice!) and long distance friendships are challenging. Sometimes too much time goes between our phone calls, notes and visits – but our friendship remains close.
Her friendship is a tremendous blessing to me. As Anne Shirley would say, we are “bosom friends”:) Certainly our friendships are real gifts that the Lord sends us and I am so thankful for Carol.
I’d tell her (again) today too – if only she read my blog?!?!:)
So this mug is just funny! Moodiness pretty much runs in our family – but our daughter has it perfected to an art…or at least she did when she was younger. Come to think of it, maybe that’s me??! Naaaa.
We bought this in Texas for her – a little souvenir. We all thought it was hysterical – her, not so much. Maybe she was in a mood that day!!:)
And, yes, this last one is my favorite and speaks for itself. Another sweet friend, and grieving mom, gave this to me last year at a fundraiser we did in Tyler’s honor. Hubbie and I both are quick to grab this one from the cabinet (yea, that’s this morning’s coffee still in the cup)- and it always makes me smile. I hope your mugs make you feel happy each morning. This one also makes me feel loved!!
