The other day I was thinking about how long I could go without my phone. I think I may have went 2 hours without checking it.. and then was tempted to check. This got me thinking about what are the things in my life that I literally would not want to live without which brings me to this topic.
My most prized possessions: (I have two, couldn’t list just one)
1. Snow babies. Not sure if people really know what that is, but it’s like a winter/Christmas ordainment. My mom and I used to go to these craft fairs and collect them. Now I have a few of my own and a few from my childhood, I love them so much.
2. My photo album. I have photos of my childhood. One of the only things that I got out of my house before I was put in foster care.
What is your most prized possession?
My most prized possession is my necklace. It was my maternal grandmothers necklace and it was passed down to me. My hair used to always get caught and tangled in it growing up so she always told me that one day it would be mine. It’s a gold necklace with a heart, anchor, and cross on it. It means the world to me and I never take it off (she never did either)
That is so nice, Allison! Great memory with it too.
Hey Torry! And Ally! I think my most prized possession will always be the necklace I received from my grandmother after she’d passed away- so funny that Ally and I both have that in common.
Her necklace is a gold heart with diamonds on it. I used to sit on her lap and say, “Are these real diamonds??” and she would laugh and say, “I HOPE SO!”
When she died, it was her one possession that I’d asked for. I keep it so safe and wear it when I need her presence.
Thanks for making me think about this today Torry- I needed to take a minute to talk to my Gram!
I feel like my necklace is definitely my most prized possession as well. I started off with just having a gold cross with the “our father in heaven: prayer written on it in Spanish, but it has definitely evolved. I have turned it into a charm necklace, and I have something from almost everyone close to me on it. I have a wooden bead from my best friend’s dreads, I have a New York Yankees logo charm from my dad, a baseball from my aunt, and a ring from my dear friend. I hope to keep ading new things to be able to keep those who are important to me close to my heart! 🙂
Love these memories and thoughts ladies!! So special <3
