R is for Red Plate. A-Z Blogging Challenge.
Have you heard of the special Red Plate?
Early American families had a tradition in which someone being recognized in a special way was served a meal on a red plate. It was a visible reminder to the one receiving it that they were supported, loved, remembered, and appreciated.
Think of all the ways it could be used today:
a sports victory
any kind of recovery
a big welcome home
a pregnancy confirmed
a difficult job done well
the successful landing of a job
an act of kindness
encouragement after disappointment
welcoming a guest in your home
