This corner of my kitchen counter sends me a message every morning when I walk in the kitchen to make coffee.
It is a message about friendship, the flea market, and zinnias growing- three of my favorite things.
It’s about my dear friend Anna knowing that I would love this particular Mackenzie-Childs pattern and giving me the tray for my birthday.
She knew even though I didn’t know, that I would love it.
It’s about my friend Mary Jo giving me a Courtly Check rattan tray and reminding me- every time I look
at it sitting on my kitchen counter- that she has washed many dishes at my kitchen sink after one of our parties.
It’s about my daughter Lauren casually saying one day-
And, it’s about my beautiful zinnias growing that have already given me ear to ear grinning pleasure this spring.
That’s what this corner says to me.
I hope you have a special corner too.
