Some treasures are big and lumpy, others are small and shiny. This one is battered and well used.
Many years ago I received this tin filled with brown sugar fudge (a family recipe – another treasure!) as a Christmas gift from my mother. The fudge is long gone, but the tin is used daily. It now holds tea bags!
I open it every morning to make Bill’s cup of tea. I can’t say that every morning I remember that it once held fudge (after all, it is early morning and I’m pretty much on autopilot), but now and again I do remember. And when I remember, I smile and feel all warm and fuzzy, thinking of my mother and the love she put into the making of the fudge it originally held.
