Week 2/52: Made with Love!

Last week's photograph was so fun and refreshing but this week, I decided to stay inside and do a photograph involving two of my favorite possessions. Take a Look:

 As you can see, there are 2 parts to this picture. The first part, and the one which may be familiar to some, is ALF. My parents tell me that when I was a baby, there was only 1 thing that could truly keep me pacified and that was the show ALF. If anyone hasn't watched, I highly encourage you to do so. It's fantastic! I had great taste in shows even as a wee one! The stuffed ALF shown here in the picture has a neat story behind it. My dad and I were manning the cart while my mom shopped one day and as the story goes, my father and I found this doll and I just wouldn't let it leave my sight. Therefore, my Dad made sure that they bought it for me! I still have it and it's been with me ever since. It went to college with me and even on my clinicals. I literally don't leave home very often without it.

The pillow case is from my mom. She made my sister and I both one when we were kids. She held onto it and gave it to me a year or so ago after I got married and was trying to relocate all my stuff to my new house. It, along with ALF, now proudly go with me everywhere I go.

I keep them around so that I can always remember no matter how far away from home I am, there are two parents who raised me to be strong, courageous, compassionate, and strong in every situation I encounter. It also serves as a reminder of just how blessed I am to have those two individuals as my parents.
