My Grandmother is known for a lot of wonderful things, but my favorite has to be her charm bracelet. This isn't the regular type of charm bracelet like my mother and I have where we get a new charm when we visit a memorable place. Grammy has a charm for each of her five children, seven grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. That is a total of 19 charms, with another on the way! Each charm has our name on it, as well as our birthday. Maybe this is how Grammy never forgets to send us our birthday cards!

Like many people are known for a always wearing a specific piece of jewelry, my Grandmother goes no where without her charm bracelet. When I was little and she would come to my viola recitals (she came to all of them) I always knew where she was in the audience by the sound of her charm bracelet. Whenever I hear the bracelet, I know where my grandmother is. Also whenever I hear a charm bracelet I think of her. This is one of the many reasons why she is such a charming person to me!
Here is the Matriarch with all of her great-grandchildren!
