Did your Ma give you vessels and other such things, while you got married ???? Oh yeah, mine did it too.
As my Ma was about to mark in all the vessels, as to the ownership part of it, I was quite not for it. I actually don’t like it when people write on those vessels the time and occasion for that gift. Somehow, I didn’t know how to put it across to my Ma, without offending her sentiments. And since mine was the first marriage in both Dad and Mom sides, it was a great occasion for everyone to celebrate and have fun. So, all the more reasons for my Ma to engrave the initials of me and my husband onto all the vessels she bought for me. It was a proud moment for her.
Then, as I saw the letters that’ll be engraved onto the vessels, I really felt happy and gave it a big Thumbs Up.
Looking at it as a single entity, I was so elated. It didn’t represent me or him as different people, but represented our journey together, with that simple letters “US”. The initials melted together to form US, which we were.
And, we have stood together, to reinstate that Letter engraving and its indeed a satisfying moment, as we complete 16 years as “US” !!!
