3. Every woman has a piece of jewelry that doesn’t have a high market value, but it’s priceless to her. What piece of jewelry is yours? Why?
I don’t really have a whole lot of jewelry, period. I bought myself some diamond stud earrings for my birthday the year I left my husband- I almost always have them in. The piece that means the most to me is a silver ring with a little green stone, which my friend Sylvia gave me. Sylvia and I met in Turkish class my second year in Germany. I had gone to a special 3D ultrasound with her one fine spring day, and it was the day we found out what sex her twins would be. To celebrate we went shopping, and I bought her a ring that was almost identical. She then surprised me by giving me her ring. I have often put it on when I feel I’m going to have a challenging day, in some way to channel her energy and strength. She is one of the most courageous women I have ever known, raising those babies so well all on her own. I feel sad that I have lost touch with her and so many other friends I made while I was living in Germany. But we’ll always have a connection in our hearts, and I have her ring to wear on tough days.
