Unexpected memories stirred by common stuff

It is amazing just how sneaky memories can be, how they can be triggered by the oddest of things. I have been being very careful in my spending, so had not bought paper towels since before mom passed away - until a few days ago. Then after I got home I did not open them... not until this evening. When I opened them I could not help but think about how the last time I had paper towels in the kitchen, mom had been alive. It was one of so very many small things that suddenly trigger thinking about her and how much I wish she was still here. Even a year later, such thoughts are hard to push away when they hit.
