Leaving a comment on LisaLeonardDesigns post got me to thinking –  how can one thing bring back so many memories and such hope at the same time?  We jar tomatoes we grow in our backyard.  We pick ’em, wash ’em, and put ’em in a pot!  Some we use to make tomato sauce that we jar.  My grandmother used to “put up” sweet and sour pickles, among other things.  There is such a great sense of satisfaction when you see the jars all lined up in your pantry.  I don’t know about you, but when my pantry is stocked with good things I have hope.  Mason jars!  God bless the man who made them!
