Today's Autumn Blog Challenge Prompt: Write about an item you consider to be a family heirloom.
I actually have a couple items that I consider family heirlooms that I would like to pass down to my own kids one day. I have two nice sets of silverware my great grandmother gave me that I keep boxed up in my closet. I also have a diamond ring from my grandmother and from another grandmother I have her lighter. It's a special lighter because it's the one she always used before she quit smoking and it has a silver case with a unicorn decorated with real turquoise. This particular grandmother has Native American ancestory so she always had a lot of turquoise jewelry and accessories. I used to own other items from this particular grandmother that were destroyed in a house fire so I hold on to everything now for dear life and keep it up for safe keeping. I hope my girls will find the sentiments and value in these items later on down the road that I do now.
