My husband's given me both, but this is what I wear every day.
It's tarnished, and to many I'm sure it looks like a pile of junk,
To me it's a bit of my story,
and worth more than diamonds or pearls.
Here is the end of Grandma Izzy's spoon,
My sister made it for me a few years back.
She was a gem, and I miss her so very much.
It seemed a little lonely,
So I added this little piece,
I don't know the story behind it, but it was from my first mom.
There are two empty frames.
I've never filled them, and like them that way.
With four kids and a husband, how could I pick just two? :)
My brother gave me this after my second mom passed away.
He had given it to her while she was sick,
I added this little piece a few weeks ago, but decided it was too bulky.
It reminds me of blogland, and the kindred spirits I've found in this virtual world.
I added it to a longer chain with another sweet charm from a dear friend.
I clink a little with all of these pieces as I walk.
I'm not trading them for all the diamonds or pearls in the world.
P.S. I was still wearing my Winter coat a week ago when I photographed these. :)
