paperweight, heartweight

Paperweights do more than hold paper. They hold a spot in our lives. Weight in our heart, and memories for a lifetime. This is my Grammy's paperweight. I look at it and am awash in memories of time spent with my Grammy. Is it worth money? No, but it is priceless to me. Because inside, are all the myriad moments spent with my Grammy, time that is beyond measure and price, trapped like a genie in a bottle. Released by me when I hold it in my hand and remember. What holds your memories?
