"Fun to have lunch with your mother."
I wondered what Rebecca was talking about until she pointed at the candle. I had decorated for lunch by taking out a candlestick of my mothers and lighting it.
"My mother brought this back from London in 1939," I said. "I never saw her light it. And now I am going to." I am on my new mission: to use everything I have saved over the years. One candlestick down. Many more projects to go.
