As I was flipping through old photo albums, I came across this birth announcement card and these hospital bracelets from the day my husband was born. I tried to imagine that top bracelet fitting around his tiny wrist. As I held the second, larger bracelet I thought, "This is something his mother wore." I never had the privalege of meeting my husband's mother and at the moment that I held that bracelet, I felt a connection to her as I imagined what she must have been thinking and feeling on that day so long ago. Love. Tremendous amounts of love. How fortunate I am that these precious keepsakes were saved over the years and that I was able to feel that love and connection through a small piece of plastic.
