My youngest daughter had been asking for a locket for her birthday. I told her she could earn it, because the one she wanted was pretty expensive. This would be the fifth chain/necklace for this girl, she breaks and loses them. Saturday night I found my mothers’ locket that my daddy gave her years ago. My mother had quite a bit of jewelry and a beautiful fur coat that I inherited when she passed away. I had jewelry from momma and my sister until someone broke in my home and stole my jewelry in 2007. Broke my heart, because all they took was my jewelry box and it had all their jewelry in it, except these two pieces.
They are both 14kt Gold and I explained to them both how important these pieces of jewelry were to me, but I wanted them to have them. They are young ladies now and I know they will take care of the necklaces and cherish my mother and sister’s memory. They were both very elated and appreciated receiving the jewelry. I was happy and cried a little, I miss my mom and sister so much.
My momma had four grand daughters, my two and my brother has two daughters. She didn’t get to spend time with my two nieces, but she was tickled pink when I had my girls. She was an old school grandma, put baby food in their bottles when they were under 6 weeks old, talking about these babies need food. The holes in the nipples were the size of a dime almost, it was funny. I had to sneak and pour that mess out (sorry momma). It was all good, she did what she knew best and I allowed her to be grandma.
This is when my youngest was born in June 2000, time does fly. I love going down memory lane. I love my girls.
Share some of your family memories with me….
