Blue Memory ~ Photo Challenge Day 69

I am continuing with the 365 Photos Challenge and I am now on Day 69. Anyone can join in, you do not have to be nominated. Here are the rules on the 365 Photos Challenge.


This blue bowl was my Momma’s. We all called our parents Momma and Daddy growing up. This bowl is such a treasure. I remember she always kept candy in it on the kitchen counter. I try to keep it in a place where the light really shows off the blue beauty. I don’t have a lot of my Momma’s things but what I have I treasure. I was 14 when she died. A hard age to lose a parent, but any age is hard. She was a light in everyone’s life. She never met a stranger and nobody ever had a bad word to say about her. I was very proud of my Momma and miss her every day.

  1. It’s good when we have valuable items for us from our closest people. Who are not among us. The bowl is beautiful. Let there always be candy in it. This will keep the tradition alive.

  2. What a beautiful bowl, and such nice memories of your mom 🙂 You mention that you called your parents Momma and Daddy growing up – here it’s usually Mammy and Daddy, though I’ve seen some Americans take exception to the former (I don’t remember why). 14 is a terribly tender age to lose one’s mother. I was 16 when my Dad died, but it would have been harder at 14, and harder if it had been my mother. Of course you miss her!

    • A lot of people use Mom or Mother. Yes, 14 is an age when you really need your mother, as a daughter. I grew up really fast. So sorry about your Dad, it is so hard Norman. Each loss is different. I know you know that by now.
