I have two objects that I already take with me everywhere I go. The first is a small pendant that broke off of a necklace my mother got me for Christmas when I was away from home in the military. She had it specially made for me. It is a piece of map showing my hometown laid underneath glass.

The second is a necklace I made from my old dog's dog tag. It shows a paw print on one side and his name, Mojo, on the other side. I wear it nearly everyday. He was the first dog I adopted, and I lost him very abruptly when he was four years old due to an intestinal rupture.

What a difficult decision! I would agree with many there that I would bring a Bible as my first item. I think my other item would be a stuffed dog my husband gave me. Someone to keep me company and a constant reminder of my husband. Besides, Simon Theodore is a great listener.

That's a really tough question to answer, but the ones I could think of at the top of my head would be pictures of my family and my bible. Out of old habits I would probably have a drawing pad of some sort since I am an artist.

I definitely like the proper shoes idea! I think I would bring a journal (with some photos tucked inside) and maybe a mulit tool that included a pen. Tough question!

One of my grandmother's handmade quilts would definitely be going with me, as they are extremely sentimental, but also serve a functional purpose. Additionally, probably a small notebook and pen. Maybe not the most practical, but I think I would lose my mind if I couldn't write things down!

I don't think I have any items that I would bring with it. It's hard to choose just a few items that only serve as memory sakes and not for survival. The items I have now that I tend to bring with me are stuffed animals that were given to me by friends and family.

This is a very difficult decision to make. I think I would opt for my diary and a pen. In my diary I have my favourite inspirational quotes and a picture of my family. These would give me moral support. The pen would be useful too as i could write my experiences.
