When I was leaving behind my tomboy years, and entering my teenage years, I received a charm bracelet as a gift. Within the span of one or two years, I received several pretty charms. The delicate silver link chain, combined with the charms, would jingle-jangle, and I loved the sound of it. I had two different Christmas charms, a confirmation charm (back then confirmations were made much earlier than today), and a birthday charm. All of the charms had the names of the giver on the back, along with a few sentimental words (Bless those Engravers). I was very smitten with my charm bracelet. I enjoyed walking around the house and going to family gatherings, moving my wrist to and fro nonchalantly (of course), hearing the melodious sounds of charms clinking. It made me smile.
Unfortunately, I haven't the smallest clue as to where this charm bracelet is today. I have always been careful with my jewelry, but this goodie has just slipped off my wrist. I will always remember this bracelet, one or two items in particular. They were from my parents, and had....plenty of charm.
