What material item do you have from your family that has special meaning to you?


Is it from your parents or grandparents? and why does it mean so much?

    Wonderful memories indeed, potato bugs and all. It is great that your mom realized how special the music box was to you.

    An artifact with a mystery. Solving some of the questions might destroy the mistique... or generate more questions. Obviously it was special to him... perhaps a way to keep you curious and asking questions. A special legacy from your grandpa.

    Yes, I think all of these items bring back recollections, but a chiming clock is a constant reminder of past memories.

    Interesting that the first two items had an auditory element, which can be both subtle and strong.

    Interesting. Though the memories might not be the fondest, they are nevertheless important. Some people try to forget the negatives, but all of our experiences teach us something.

    Very cool-- and unique to have a glimpse into the mind of an ancestor. I'm glad his marriage was important enough to list among his achievements. :)
