We like to shop at Costco and often my husband does the shopping on his way home from running on Saturday mornings. He does a great job looking for the best deal. Our dish soap had been the Kirkland brand for quite some time so when he came home from his last trip I noticed the dish soap had changed to my favorite color, green. It was Palmolive. I then remembered my mom used Palmolive dish soap faithfully when I was growing up. I didn't think anything more about it and kept using the current bottle of dish soap.
I went to do dishes one day last week, felt the bottle was quite heavier and saw it was the new bottle of Palmolive. I didn't think twice about it and started to pour a small amount into my kitchen sink. I was taken back by the scent of Palmolive dish soap and instantly thought about my mom using Palmolive dish soap when I was growing up. I can't really remember a particular dish story to tell you. I can't even really visualize her washing the dishes. What I can tell you is the scent of dish soap reminded me of my mother. It triggered a warm feeling in my heart and doing dishes now makes me smile.
