The entire bracelet

This Pandora bracelet is very important to our family and especially our mom. This holds many memories in just one of those charms. Each charm has different meanings and has substantial emotional meaning to my mom and is a thing that makes her, her. This also shows many meanings as one of her grandma’s had a charm that was given to her so she could put on her bracelet but she had lost it. She was heartbroken as her grandma was very important to her so if she were to lose the others I know it would upset her as well. She has been given a lot of those charms over the years. Each one for my brothers, one for being a grandma, one for being a mother, and one for being a wife. Each has their own meaning and their own story to it. The grandma one that was given to her more recently shows that she was important and that she raised her children well and she got grandparents because of it. Also, it shows that she is an amazing grandma and deserves everything she got and deserves everything in the future. This could also connect to many other family stories we have as there were stories that she would have to deal with 3 children, cook for them, by HERSELF! Then go and work 2-3 jobs every day to just get the bills done, food on the table, and just to live. This just shows that she is a very hardworking person and deserves a lot that she gets blessed with in her life. I’m proud to have her as my mother and no one would ever compare to her.
