I debated as to whether to have used a ring my mother gave me when I was still in college. It was one of her earrings. She lost one and had the other one made into a ring. I will treasure this forever.
The one precious item I chose was from both of my parents. It is a box of prayers. It symbol of their love for me. The way I see it, they put all their prayers in one box and gave that to me.
When I take out a card to pray, it is their voices I hear saying the prayer out loud, praising God and asking them to keep and guide me. It reminds me of how they taught me to pray and believe; that I am not really alone - there is always Someone to talk to and Someone who always listens.
