My mom has an antique tin “CANDY” sign above her sink in the kitchen. I love it. Although my mom would give us the shirt off her back, the “CANDY” sign is off limits (yes, I have asked).
So, as per our previous post, we made our own sign. After shopping, and aimlessly wandering the aisles of Hobby Lobby, we presented the kids with the opportunity to design one. As usual, they were much more insightful than I could have imagined.
Hence, the “Good Eggs” sign that now adorns our kitchen wall. Not only does it look neat, it has an added significance, because the kids’ Grandfather Broggi always called them “Good Eggs”. Now we have an every day reminder of him, and his expectations and belief that they are in fact “Good Eggs”.
I did not realize the significance of this expression until I looked it up. It was just something we said as a compliment, an off handed remark. “Good Eggs” and “Bad Eggs” may look the same on the outside. However, “Good Eggs” are just as lovely on the inside as they are on the outside.
Thanks to Emma and Avery, we now have a daily reminder of their late Grandfather Broggi and his expectation and belief that they are in fact, “Good Eggs”.
