I put it on today and wore it to church. I didn't think much about it and when I came home, when I changed my shirt, I took it off and laid it on the shelf near where I had found it. It is reimder of a time long ago and a relationship that did not survive all the changed and growth spurts that are called living or life.
It is a sourvenir of who I was back then. I take it out every now and then and remember. I think about the person to who gave it to me, and I feel a twinge of sadness, but no regrets now. Some relationships last forever and are made of gold. Some appear golden, but are just fool's gold.
