Day 15 — Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it

Let me tell you right now, I haven’t tried living without these two things. This question is going too far, hell.

There are two things I can’t live without and it because of their meaning to me. One is a necklace that I wear as a bracelet and a watch.

When I was in high school my Uncle in Detroit sent me a tri-color gold necklace. I have had that necklace for over 29 years. When it got too small to wear around my neck I made it into a bracelet and when the clasp broke, I put another one on it. The one time I thought I lost it, I started panicking and was in tears searching for it and when I found it in my car between the stick shift I started crying all over again out of pure joy. I do not play about my necklace/bracelet.  He is my mom’s last living sibling…

Mr. Moore, my boss on my second job who died in 2007 and who was like a father to me, gave me a Seiko watch for 6 years of service with him. I am wearing the watch right now and the battery has been dead for months now because I haven’t had the time to have it replaced. But every day I put this watch on because it has such a sentimental value to me because Mr. Moore gave it to me. I have had it since 2000 well over a decade. It was almost broken a few months back and I remember how I stopped what I was doing to find the missing piece and to calm down because I thought I wasn’t going to be able to wear the watch again and just the thought was overwhelming. When I found the missing part I was able to put it back together and all was well in my world. But baby if I couldn’t wear the watch again there was going to be hell to pay.

I am partial to things that I have had a long time and mean something to me.

  1. I love that you’ve treasured these items as you have.

    I think my thing would be my wedding ring. It’s the nicest thing I’ve ever own and the thought of misplacing it makes me sick.

  2. I have sentimental pieces too. A ring that I’ve had since I was 13 and a necklace; sadly currently broken that a dear friend gave me when I went back to London in 86
