In Attire

My object that you see is a gold necklace with a crucifix on it, this necklace was given to me from my mother but it was a gift from my grandmother. I wear my necklace constantly gives me luck and just a good feeling when I wear it since it was a present from my grandmother whom I rarely see. Last time I saw my grandmother or when my grandmother had felt me, seen me, and just able to see me grow was since 2002-2004. My grandmother lives far away so I haven’t seen her in forever, but closer I get from seeing her is pictures and phone calls. My grandmother lives in Mexico, I was born there and came to the United States. So, it’s been tough not being able to hug my grandmother and tell her thank you for the gift but she's able to hear my voice knowing I loved and appreciated the gift.

Place(s): Mexico
