Day 116: My Heart Box

This gorgeous wooden heart box with stained glass inlay is a gift from my beloved husband Ron.  He made this for me in his shop.  I put the watch in the photo to give some idea of scale.  The box is about 12 inches tall and 11 inches wide.  Inside it has a felt lining.  I use it for jewelry and other treasures.  Studying the design one notices something extraordinary.  The stained glass, which is fragile, is next to three pieces of bamboo, twigs from a tree in our yard.  Bamboo is strong and resilient and lasts for a long time.  I read it to mean that Ron's love for me is like the bamboo: eternal.  What beauty.  Thank you, Ron.
