#jewelryboxstories: my locket necklace

Grandma Lainie bought me this locket and necklace for Christmas one year.  There are two photos tucked inside – one of Grandma Lainie and one of Grandpa Pud.

I have shown the kids who is inside and it still catches me off guard when Tate says, Is Grandma Lainie coming? (he notices my necklace as I lean into the car to do seat belts)

I usually wear this necklace when I’m about to do something uncomfortable.  If I’m about to go to an event where I don’t know anyone.  If I’m going to go interview a business owner for a Humans of Danforth story.

Wearing it makes me feel like she’s with me.  It makes me braver.
