For today’s blog post I would like to highlight one of my container challenge images. According to the feedback I received, the image produced many smiles and a few bouts of laughter. It produced a lot of memories for me and a few smiles on my face, too.
Daddy’s Cup by Kathy K. McClellan is a photograph taken for Day Six of the Thirty Day Container Challenge.
This cup belonged to my father. I bought it for him several years before he passed away over twenty years ago. He suffered from several lung diseases and used oxygen full time during his last few years of life.
When I gave Daddy this cup he still had his sense of humor and thought it was very funny. He used it when he drank coffee from the day it was given to him until the last day he was able to hold a cup of coffee. You can see that it has the scars of being used for many years.
I found this cup in my mom’s cabinet after she passed away and brought it home with me. It is a reminder of my father’s laughter when he saw it for the first time.
I hope it brings a smile to your face, too.
