Today I'd like to share with you my baby bracelet. It was a gift from my Great Grandmother, Bessie Louise .
It is gold. Inside is inscribed with B.L.J. to K.L.W. 1960
Which means Bessie Louise J. to Kathi Louise W. Here is a photo of my Great Grandmother Bessie holding me in the back yard. She died about four years after this photo was taken. Victoria and Jessica both got to wear the bracelet in a few baby pictures. I suppose the first one to have a baby girl will get to keep the bracelet someday.
I think I'm the only one of us three sisters who still has hers. My sister Kelli traded hers to a little girl down the street for a toy, when she was about six years old. That little girl then threw it down the storm drain. How sad.
I don't remember a whole lot about my Great Grammie Bessie, but I am honored that she gave me such a lovely gift, and that she wanted a picture of herself holding me.
Above is her own handwriting on the back of this photo. I look forward to seeing her again some day in Heaven.
I am glad you came to see my special bracelet. Please stop in again to visit me. I'll put on the pot and we'll have some coffee.
