A father's Rosary

This object is important to me since my dad gave it to me.  This connects me and my whole family since we always pray with my parents there in Ecuador.  My parents when they emigrated from Ecuador to here, they took with them a Rosary, and that helped them on the long journey to get here.  We always use it as something that gives us strength to keep going and never give up.  This is my old house when we used to pray, it had the role of protecting us and giving us strength despite the economic difficulties.  This rosary was made in Ecuador, first my dad bought it, and then he gave it to me before arriving here.  My whole family has one, but I think it only has great meaning for us.
