What object do you no longer have that still breaks your heart years later?


What object (not a person or pet) do you no longer have that still breaks your heart years later? (a shattered piece of china, a stolen object, a house, a piece of jewelry, a car...)

    Oh, Susan, I can only imagine how that must feel. My mother lost her engagement ring (to theft or childhood mischief we'll never know). I remember how much she cried and cried.

    Photos are much more powerful than the paper they are printed on (or storage medium that holds them). They are sort of a "backup" of our memories. You say it best, though: "Never beat yourself up for the past. Live for today!!". Thank you!

    Oh, Kate, how frustrating. I'm sorry. Can you contact your ex and offer to pay the shipping costs if he sends it back to you? Maybe he'd be kind enough to send the negatives, at least, or scan in the pictures and email them to you?

    Ohhh, that's hard. It's too bad the new apartment owners didn't try to contact you about the trunk. I mean, a trunk isn't a small thing to lose! Somebody must know how to find it and its contents. It's the little things--trinkets--we miss sometimes.

    That's tough to lose a memento of such a monumental event in your life.

    What a beautiful way to put it, CynthiAnn. I know I wouldn't be who I am without all of my experiences, good and bad, which form my memories and my being. I'm so glad that your family stuck together and are at peace with the past now.

    That's not weird if it was important to you! Someday (if not already) you'll get a similar or identical system, but it still won't be the same: you can never go back. You CAN, however, learn to enjoy April Fools Day, I bet, or at least not hate it.

    You sound so calm and at peace with what happened... Maybe it was a sign that you know how to let go of the worry and can let anything go without worrying. It sounds like you are strong and at peace and that "My Guardian" is in your power now.

    Peace

    Landscapeartist, I'm sorry for your loss. Perhaps you can do some other family-related activity that represents how you came together again to honor the love represented by the lost ring. Plant a tree? Volunteer together for a charity?

    :-) I kind of feel the same way about my current car--after a string of lemons, I've got this reliable '94 Corolla that just keeps on going and I'm hesitant to replace it (even though it's about time--I jokingly refer to it as a "college car").

    I think I know how you feel. My car and I have been through a lot together over the years, hauling everything from fertilizer in the trunk to 5 adults (3 squished into the back) to 4 adults and 5 service dogs/service dogs in training. Glad I drove!!

    Ramsa1, I'm so sorry. It sounds like a real treasure, too, with probably some family or historical meaning to it. What happened to it, if I may ask?

    I'm so sorry; I know how much certain pictures mean to me, and I'd be upset at ever losing them.

    Between fires and mother nature's floods and hurricanes, we sure have lost a lot of memories and treasures (to us, at least). It sounds to me like you've got the remembrance of a fun time still, Kevin: just never let it die. Tell others your stories.

    Oh, that's too bad. Did something happen to divide you or did you just grow apart? Is there any chance of a reunion by tracking him/her down on the Internet? I stopped talking to my best childhood friend; she died in Nov. before we had a reunion :-(

    Cars are so important to us, aren't they? I think for me they represent freedom and equality with everyone else on the road. The car may be "long gone by now," but clearly your memories keep it alive and give it meaning--and yourself, too.
