Next, her bracelet. Again, another special gift. This from my Grandma, who was most excited to get her something pretty to wear on her special day. She can't be here and we are really going to miss her, but she will be with us in spirit and I know I will always be reminded of her when I see this bracelet.
And finally a few of my own little things. The first is the cross I got as a gift for my baptism that I really love. The next is a crystal pitcher from my own Godmother, Marcia, who I reference in another blog as well. She received one for her own baptism and then gave me one too. I am so glad to be able to use it tomorrow, it's very lovely and definitely perfect for a special occasion. And finally a painting I made for Reese to commemorate her big day. It's not much but a special little reminder that we were thinking of her.Tomorrow we will have a special day for Reese, it will be marked with family and some special friends. We will be busy talking and eating too much and hopefully enjoying the nice weather. But one day when we are quietly looking through some old things we will cross the path of these sentimental reminders and smile at the reminder of Reese's baptism day!
