The cup in front of me is empty of liquid but overflows with memories. The very pale blue china cup and saucer was a gift to my mom from my brother Joseph.He knew mom loved china and all shades of blue.
Joseph and mom had many important talks when he was growing up as did I. Most of those times the pale blue cup and saucer sat in front of mom, the cup filled with coffee.
It was many years later Joseph told mom he bought the cup and saucer at an estate sale.It was than,mom told him she drank hot tea in a cup just like it when she was a young girl lining in England.
The cup and saucer is on the table waiting for fresh brewed coffee to be poured into it,as I tell mom she is going to be a grandmother.

The mention of coffee in the cup reminds me so much of when I was a little girl watching my grandmother and mother drink their coffee every morning. Thanks for bringing back those memories :).

God bless!

This is a super sweet piece on how traditions get passed down and how things can bring back important memories.

You had some tiny errors like Mom should be capitalized when used as a name (without a modifier in front like my or her)than instead of then. A challenge buddy could help you with these little details, if you need help finding one, feel free to PM.

You covered the topic and told a short but sweet story. I'd love to hear more like the troubles or talks that the MC or the brother had or how Mom reacted to the news. This is a good thing because it means you piqued my curiosity. Keep writing those stories! Good job.
