What inherited item do you hold most dear?
I was inspired by this question asking what you’d save if your house were on fire.
Most of us have lost someone that we’ve loved dearly. Have you inherited any items from loved ones who’ve passed on? Which do you hold most dear, and why?
Personally, I have a few. My Nana was an avid reader (as am I) and she kept a journal of all the books she read in the last 30 or so years of her life. Some have little notes next to the titles (“Too sexy!” – Nana was rather Catholic), some are just lists of titles. After she died, my parents made sure I was able to have it.
I also have Nana’s four-poster bed and dresser set. My apartment is too small for it now, but it’s living at my parents’ house for now. I slept in that bed when I was 9 and had chicken pox, and felt like a princess.
I also have a big old heavy brown ceramic bowl, which she used when making perogies. It’s ugly and I don’t ever use it, but it brings back memories and I’d hate to lose it.
What about you? What do you have around the house, and why does it mean so much to you?
