I don’t really remember a time when Mom didn’t have her Red Plate. She pulled it out for every birthday, graduation or special occasion. My brothers and I are all grown and on our own but we get together almost every Sunday as a family for dinner. Of course, the red plate doesn’t come out every week, but it just doesn’t seem like a birthday without the red plate. We all look forward to our special days when we can eat off of the special plate. And now that we are all grown, we each have our own red plate that we can use within our own families and carry on the tradition!
