So, this morning while I picked out earrings to wear, I came across a
pair of pearl earrings that were given to me by my uncle when I turned 15.
The earrings came with a necklace that is gone
as the pearls began to flake.
Being able to wear these earrings 20 years later and
remembering the moment he gave them to me, is special,
mostly because my uncle is long gone.
That was the last birthday we had together.
