Week #5: Something Someone Gave You
I don’t have a picture of it to share, but I’m grateful for the watch that I wear on my right wrist every day. It was my first Christmas gift from Al. From my recollection, there’s a tradition in his family that the first Christmas gift, when someone is newly dating, is a watch.
It’s a gorgeous piece, way more flashy and sparkly than I was expecting. It definitely shows signs of wear (half the links show copper from the finish being worn off), and I’ve had to replace the battery two or three times. But, it hasn’t broken completely in over six years, which is amazing given the number of times that I’ve accidentally dropped it!
I will continue to wear until the day that it completely dies and refuses to work anymore. To me , it’s a beautiful reminder of our first few months together, and how enduring our relationship has been.
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
