As we journey through life we acquire items that symbolize milestones along our journey. Those milestones turn into memories and the items become the reminders of those special times in our lives.
There seems to be an invisible bond that forms between the item and the event or person with which it is connected. That bond has a unique way of closing the gap in time and helps us keep fond memories secure in our hearts.
Take, for instance, a wedding ring. When my aunt passed away, her wedding ring was inherited by her sister (my mother in law). Months later, as a birthday gift, the ring was given to me. I treasure it and wear it on special occasions and particularly when I’m needing good luck! I feel that my aunt’s essence is with me and it brings me joy remembering good times I shared with her. This is just a small example of how significant family heirlooms can be.
After all, when we are gone, we want our loved ones to remember us fondly – to remember how much we were loved and treasured ourselves. Safeguarding such special items to keep within the confines of family and relatives is what makes them incredibly special and earn the prestigious title of “heirloom”.
