Do You Have The Time?

Praying for you all the time

One of my favorite gifts I received from my grandparents (you can read more about them here and here) was a watch.

It was so pretty, with two toned silver and gold face and Gram paid special attention to my need for the hour markings in order to properly tell time on a watch.

Does anyone else have trouble telling whether it is 4:00 or 5:00 when the markings are only on 12, 3, 6 and 9? This is my biggest requirement when shopping for a watch and you would be surprised how difficult it can be to find pretty ones with the hour markings.

I knew my grandparents had splurged on it because it was an Anne Klein watch from Robinson's-May. - Ooohh, fancy.

I eventually stopped wearing wrist jewelry when I worked in retail because I would always snag them on the fixtures or hangers. On more than one occasion, I caught a beaded bracelet on a 4-way and watched as the beads rained down on the marble floor.

Praying for you all the time

Unfortunately, my watch was no exception and it bears several battle scars.

But my favorite part of my watch had nothing to do with the watch at all. It was the sweet note that my grandmother included in the box.

She had a way with funny puns... maybe that's where I get it from. (wink)

I have no doubt that my grandparents were actually praying for me all the time. They loved me with a fierce love and wanted to see all my dreams come true.

In my jewelry box, along with Gram's sweet note, in her unforgettable handwriting, that watch is a constant reminder that my grandparents loved me and were always praying for me.

Do you wear a watch? Does it have any sentimental value like mine? Tell me about it!
