Day 10: Spoon on my Wrist


Today, I wore my favorite bracelet.

It’s a turquoise spoon-turned-bracelet that my grandmother purchased in Arizona before I was born. I’m not sure if I ever even met my grandmother, but she gave this bracelet to my mom, and I ended up with it somehow.

It’s one of those pieces I love to wear because it’s old and beautiful. But, I also love it because it’s from my home, and it’s the only thing I have connecting me to that part of my genetic past. And, of course I love the analogy – taking something and making it work in a new and beautiful way. I just love thinking that my father’s mother cherished it as much as I do.

Today, I’m thankful to have it.
