Wearing my Grandma’s Watch

My Grandma Eleanor's Longines watch

My Grandma Eleanor’s Longines watch

Several years ago my Cousin Michelle surprised me with my Grandma Eleanor’s watch. Michelle wanted me to have it – this beautiful Longines white gold watch. My Grandpa had given it to her for a special wedding anniversary and when I held it in my hands I knew I would treasure it forever. I made it my own when I took in a few of the links and started to wear it every day. Little did I know that my Grandma wore this same watch, every day herself. When Michelle told me recently that every one of her memories of our Grandma were of her wearing this watch, I was moved. I loved my Grandma Eleanor dearly; to think that we share this piece of jewelry is like having her squeeze my hand and letting me know she is still with me. Strong magic for a piece of jewelry.
