My mother-in-law gave me, as an anniversary present, two pieces of family silver - covered rectangular relish dishes. They were her grandmothers, they were her mothers and now she gave them to me. (Correction - was a wedding present to her mother. Okay.)
They're beautiful pieces - things you don't see anymore. And instead of getting them in a time of sadness, I got them in a time of joy.
I cannot say how much this means to me - that she gave me this part of her family. It's amazing. It's wonderful.
