Grandma's Needlework

My most cherished possession is an embroidery my grandmother made in 1938 when she was 14 years old. It features the beginning of Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want".

Growing up, I spent the weekends with my grandma. This needlework was always hanging above her bed, and it is something that brought me great comfort—much like the psalm itself. Even though Grandma passed in 2008, I still feel close to her every time I look at it.

What is your most cherished possession?

  1. What a wonderful piece of needlework! No wonder you cherish it so much. She did a good job for being 14 year old!
