I have a necklace that was made out of an earring that belonged to my great grandma.  My sister has a necklace made from the other earring, and my mom has the original necklace from the set.  That means quite a bit to me.

I wear my husband’s grandmother’s wedding right on my ring hand (it’s just a band) – she passed several years ago. I also wear a bracelet his other grandmother gave to me two Christmases ago; she passed just a month before our wedding. Apart from my wedding band, those are probably the 2 most precious things I own/wear.

I have a very special memory box full of old pictures of my grandparents, a necklace with my grandfather’s name engraved on it, my mom’s baby charm bracelet, my dad’s travel clock he always used as a regular clock.

Aside from some obvious (for me) important possessions such as my Bibles and my e-ring and wedding band, probably the most important possessions I have are included in my collection of every card, note, letter, invitation, or other piece of correspondence that I’ve received from significant individuals over the last almost 30 years. I have them all filed according to the person or people who gave them to me, and I love being able to look through some of them from time to time.  The most significant of all of these are the cards, notes, and letters that my precious grandmother, who has since gone home to be with the Lord, sent to me.  Even though she is no longer with me, I can still read her words, in her handwriting, and refer to the encouragement, faith, and wisdom she shared with me. 🙂

My biological Grandfathers cuff links and my great grandmas cameo.

I never met my grandfather, he died in his 40s. Mom loved him very much and still talks about him to this day. She offered his cufflinks to us for to use during the wedding and gave me Greatgandmas cameo for my boquet.

I have a couple of things. My dad passed away around 4 years ago. There is this red, hawaiian shirt that one morning he came down to breakfast in. Out of character for a man who wore basically blue. But it was in the midst of his brain cancer battle and his vision wasn’t the greatest. It just brings happy thoughts to me just because. So it’s tucked safely away in my closet.

My mother made me this gorgeous cross stitch of an angel (which i collect). I will be holding on to that and sharing it with my future kids. It truly is beautiful.

And lastly, my engagement ring. Yes it was brand new when FH bought it but the story behind it probably makes it the most meaningful thing anyone will ever do for me. See I feel in love with this ring when he surprised me to go shopping. But I knew it was out of our budget and I just couldn’t think about it. Months went by and FH worked long long hours. I’m talking 12+ hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week.  Turns out he was busting his butt to pay the ring off. And after he proposed to me he told me how the store had sold the ring to someone else even though he had put a down payment on it. There was only one left in the entire country and my FH made darn well sure it was meant for me. Love that man with all my heart.

An opal pendant my dad gave his mother. She passed it to my mom, and when mom died dad gave it to me. It has literally been worn every day for the last 50 years. 

 

When mom was carrying me, she took a ceramics class and made a ton of Christmas decor. She gave me the nativity set years ago, then dad wanted me to take it a couple years back, but I can’t bring myself to remove it from the home just yet. Every year I tell myself ‘maybe next Christmas…’
