Sunny was helping Ellen and Nate with cleaning mom’s house. She set aside a box of necklaces for Jenna to go through.
There’s a bunch of seashell leis. I think Grandma Mary must have picked a couple up each time she went on a cruise. Mom had purchased some as well, but I think the majority came from her mom.
Jenna had once asked for a “necklace making kit” and mom had given her one for her birthday. And Jenna chose a special rainbow lace full of beads to give to grandma in return. And my mom wore them proudly – at least that one day. It was in the box among the many pieces of jewelry that remained.
As Jenna was sorting through her latest “treasures” she asked which of all the necklaces my favorite was.
“Well, this one, of course.” I said as I held up the rainbow shoelace full of beads.
“Then you can have it,” Jenna beamed.
Two days later it went missing from my dresser. I found it dangling around Jenna’s neck. I asked if she was borrowing my necklace. She said that she decided she wanted to keep it and I could choose another. I think we can share. I like sharing her treasures because of her excitement.
