All that is gold does not glitter...

I had that thought
because we had a "Go Bag"
(fire preparedness emergency to go bag)
We just found out yesterday.
I had asked my husband to get it
so I could put the important documents 
and a not so solid gold, old bracelet into a safe deposit box
(the only piece of jewelry I had with any value
other than the small,  in-expensive
wedding ring I have on my finger
and both have more sentimental value
than monetary value).
We were dumb to keep it in that bag for so long
in the back of our car
that we vigilantly locked
(but possibly didn't lock that one time).
I'm heart broken
and worried sick
about identity theft
because they also took
our titles to three cars,
a scooter, and motorcycle,
immunization cards, 
birth certificates and a marriage license.
All replaceable
(but not easily nor cheaply)
EXCEPT for that sweet, gold-plated bracelet
given with some sacrifice to a great-grandmother
in 1911 by her adoring, loving and thoughtful husband.

Needless to say, I'm not very happy today.

The pictures are proof of reasons to be happy
so I think I'll look at them some more!
