the plate

This plate means a great deal to me.  It is from a collection of 13 that my Grandma Bratt collected.  There is a plate for each of the 13 colonies.  The 13 plates were prominently displayed in my Grandma's kitchen for as long as I can remember.  

Each time I visited my Grandparents I always enjoyed studying each plate.  The plates always seemed to catch my attention.  When we were in Ohio for her funeral in early September, each granddaughter got to choose a plate to keep.  

I chose the New Hampshire plate from 1986.  I will take care and cherish this plate for many years to come.  It represents many memories and lessons learned from my Grandma and Grandpa Bratt.
