365 days Writing Prompt: Bittersweet Memories
You receive a gift that is bittersweet and makes you nostalgic.What is it?
When I was in the primary grades, I saw a necklace worn by one of my classmates, it had three or four strands,it was absolutely beautiful to me, I was probably five or six years old, I felt there was nothing more beautiful than that one. I must have talked about it I never asked my parents to get one like it.
I remembered it forever, I did not forget it, when My husband’s sister-in-law came for a visit, I mentioned the necklace to her, she listened with interest, when I was done describing it,she just said, “wait I’ll be back in a few minutes.”
She came back and handed me a three strand necklace, this is for you Ranu. I sat there so surprised I couldn’t express myself instantly but I was thankful to her for her kindness. It took me back to the time when I hoped I could have one like that. It seems when you want something bad enough, God finds a way for you to have it, even if it’s many years later!
