A little over two years ago our house was robbed and though the thieves emptied my jewelry boxes they left the glass dish shown above. I’m sure it looked like nothing to them but it means a lot to me as I brought this piece home from my Grandparents house after their memorial. It sits quietly on the top of my dresser collecting those little things that add up at the end of the day. Over time I’ve replaced a few of the lost items like the carved wood heart from Ryan in the center of the photograph and continue to add new tiny treasures. My wedding ring and a pair of earrings were the only pieces of jewelry I was wearing that fateful day and I purposefully place them in this dish every night as my reminder that our family’s peace, security and traditions will carry on no matter what comes our way.
