Erinnerungen an die Kindheit als Hochzeitsgeschenk

Reddit User justgrant2009 hat von seiner Mutter zu seiner Hochzeit dieses einzigartige Geschenk erhalten. Regelmäßig bevor die Wäsche gewaschen wurde, hat sie die Taschen geleert, die Spielsachen und Kleinigkeiten, die sie dabei in den Taschen ihres Sohns gefunden hat, wurden gesammelt und haben nun ihre Bestimmung in dieser Lampe erhalten. Für justgrant ist diese Lampe das schönste und persönlichste Geschenk das er jemals erhalten hat. 

Erinnerung an die Kindheit


Die meisten Eltern würden die Kleinigkeiten in den Taschen aussortieren bzw. die besseren Stücke ihrem Kind zum Spielen zurückgeben und den Rest in den Müll werfen. Aber es zahlt sich durchaus aus, nicht wie die meisten Menschen zu ticken. Das Geschenk ist ein besonderes, das man nicht kaufen kann. Der Inhalt der Lampe erzählt viele Geschichten. Geboren wurde Justgrant 1986, in der Lampe finden sich aber auch einige Gegenstände von ihm, als er bereits 20 Jahre alt war - denn auch in seiner Collegezeit gab es Phasen in denen seine Mutter seine Wäsche gemacht hat. 

Justgrant erzählt uns auch etwas über die Lampe:

"The lamp is a glass jar full of all the things that my mom found in my pockets when doing my laundry as a child. I was born in 1986, and you can tell from a lot of the items in it.

It started off with mostly sticks, rocks, and marbles. But over time it ended up having all sorts of items ranging from Pogs, a Gameboy game (Super Mario Land), a Magic School Bus McDonald's toy, yo-yos, and Laser Quest scorecards. There are also plenty of sticks, springs, rubber-bands, and twist-ties because I went through a phase where I remember telling my parents I was going to build a robot with just those items.

I will admit that there are a few items in there from my early 20s too, as like any lazy college student, I let my mom wash my clothes while staying at home from college between semesters. And clearly, my mom was still collecting my things.

Growing up, whenever I left something in my pockets and put them in the dirty laundry, before she would wash things, she checked my pockets, and if she found anything, she put it in a glass jar on the top shelf in the laundry room. I remember as a kid, wishing soooo hard that I could get some of the items back, but it was forbidden to even go near the jar. By the time I was old enough to be sneaky about it and get into it, I had just learned to accept that that was how it worked and I wouldn't get those things back.

Years went by and I had completely forgotten about it, until this last May. I got married, and at our rehearsal dinner, when my mom and dad stood up to give their thank you speech, my mom pulled a large gift bag out from under the table. She started by giving a short speech explaining that over the years she had collected stuff from my pockets, and it was in that moment that I thought, "I'm gonna get the jar!" I started tearing up before she had finished talking. When she did, I opened the bag and found that not only was I getting the jar, I was getting it back in the form of a lamp (and yes, she has sealed the top of the lamp to it so that I still CANNOT open it).

This has definitely been the best gift I've ever received."
