Who Are You MIssing?
A few weeks ago, I had a great find at TJ Max. A bottle of Mint Imperials...Why was this such a great find? My Nanny Johnson loved them. Seeing them made me think of her and miss her. She passed away several years ago. I spent most of my life in the US and she lived in England. So we didn't get to spend enough time together, but I always knew she loved me. I know she still loves me.
She was always the first person to send me a birthday card and Christmas card. From the time I was eight until I was eighteen she sent me new pajamas for Christmas. I still get new pajamas for Christmas, but my daughter and husband get them for me now. I'm not sure if they know how the Christmas Eve pajama tradition began.
I look forward to seeing her again some day. But for now this little jar of Mint Imperials will sit on my vanity reminding me of her never ending love.
So who are you missing this holiday season?
