Sentimental Value

The soccer ball had floated 3,000 miles across the Pacific to Alaska's Middleton Island, where a radar station technician found it.  The words written on the ball led to a 16-year-old in Japan who said he'd lost everything in the tsunami that struck his town last year.  He was happy to hear his ball would be returned to him.

This got our staff talking about the things we own that have sentimental value:  a book, a piece of jewelry, an old coat, a letter from a first love.  We're wondering what has sentimental value for you.

    A couple of years ago, I was forced to leave a school with all of my best friends and a principal that was absolutely amazing. It was the hardest time of my life, moving to a new school where I knew nobody, and missing all my friends.
    But at the beginning of this year, my last year before Jr. High, I found a pencil deep in my drawers that my old principal gave to me with a reward at an assembly for the younger grades. When I saw that pencil, it made me rememer all the great times I had with my friends at that school and it spread a positive outlook on the future.

    There are a lot of things that hold sentimental value for me. One of those things has to be a pretty little teddy bear, who I always thought was dressed just like my great-grandmother, a pink dress and flowers and ribbons in her hair. Even though she died three years ago from lung cancer, I still feel her presence whenever I hug that teddy bear.

    Hope... is the only thing that I have value for. The tsunami in Japan is what took the lives of many people, their hope of a good life was probabily washed away. But it just shows that in the mist of bad things, good things can happen.

    Sometimes, sentimental value is more valuable than material value because it has special meanings for him or her.
    For example, His T-shirt which his mom made for him is more valueable than any other T- shirts.

    Something that has sentimental value to me would be a box of pictures that I have in my room. There are not that many pictures in there but they remind me of all the times when I was happy and when my family was all together. They also remind me of all the things that I loved and cherished when I was younger and all of my childhood friends that I never see anymore. They hold so many memories that I would have probably forgotten about if I didn't have the pictures to remind me.

    When my church got new hymnals, my son got ahold of one of the ones we were replacing. It is the kind that I had used in church ever since I can remember. He wrote a personal note inside the front cover, and it sits on my bedside table. It will always hold sentimental value for me.

    I'm kind of a hoarder so almost everything holds sentimental value to me, but if I could pick one thing it would be my Orangutang stuffed animal. I got it from getting a collapsed lung and spending a few weeks in the hospital, my uncle gave it to me.

    April 25, 2012 at 11:23 am |
  144. Spencer

    Anything can have a great price, even a soccer ball can be worth a million dollars with the right sentimental value... the boy in Japan lost everything in the tsunami and this soccer ball is one of the last thing he has and we all have something close to us and what if you lost it and after a year you know your going to get it back. Isn't that good enough for sentimental value?

    April 25, 2012 at 11:23 am |

    I think that sentimental value isn’t as valuable as monetary value. But I think that if someone who found my soccer ball all the way across the world, I would be astonished if they did what that man did and brought it back personally. Some people might think I don’t have a heart but I think monetary value is more important than sentimental value, because sentimental stuff is all around you but money is very hard to earn and you have to work hard to get it.so something i have for sentimental value is my childhood blanket.

    April 25, 2012 at 11:39 am |
  151. Noah

    My family is my sentimental value because I love them and they love me too and they care about me when I need help doing something. They are always there for me even when I think they are not but they will always care about me even when they are gone.

      You can live without a laptop. You can live without a phone. You can live without Twitter or Facebook or Tumblr or whatever. You can't live (well you can but you would be miserable) without friends or family or good neighbors. they are the most important things in life. I'm in high school without a phone or laptop. Am I alive? Yes I am. Sorry for the rage, but I can't stand people that value items more than people.

I now have five crystals. They all have allot of sentimental value because they go with me and have gone with me to every native american ceremony that i have gone to and were put up on the alter.

    The one thing that i have as a Sentimental Value is my class ring. The reason this is something that has sentimental value to me is that it reminds me of my mother. my mom died when i was 8 years old, one thing that i always remember my mom saying, " whatever i decide to do with my life, make sure itinvolves an education". Now i am 18 and i am the only male in my family to complete high school. This ones for you mom R.I.P

    I have two Items that have important sentimental value to me. The first is a gold ring in the shape of Jesus on the cross, with a diamond on it. My mother and step father gave this ring to me for Christmas two years ago. This is important to me because I love Jesus and live for him. It is also important to me because my mom and step-dad mean SO much to me and i love them so much. My step-dad recently passed away and it makes me think of him. The second item is a small purple teddy bear with Jesus written all over it. My brother was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. One day while he was at UNC Children's Hospital getting chemo someone went around to all the rooms giving the kids hand made teddy bears. My mom got my brother a green one and me the purple one. I take it everywhere with me because it reminds me tha I am loved. It alos has Jesus' name on it, and I love him!

    A gray strap Jacket that my boyfriend had let me borrow for a couple days before we had gotten together. It means more than alot of just a jacket to me because it reminds me of the days, feelings, and words that have been said before we got together. Those pure days of crushing and wishing that he'd be mine. He let me have his jacket the first day he asked me out.

    That ball probably had no value at all and by that 1 person in Alaska who is going to give the ball to the kid in Japan will really show that whole country that people actually care about them.

    The things that give me sentimental value isn't the item, it is the thought that counts. Homemade items are just as good as store-bought ones. If somebody had the heart to give or do something for me, no matter how small, it is considered special.

    What I cherish most, is my photo of me and my horse McBeth. He passed a few years ago, and that was probally one of the most devastating things to ever happen in my life. But when ever I look at that photo, I get the happiest feeling inside.

    The thing I cherish most is a patch I got from my mother when she was in the military, and even though I can't see her right now, it helps to have something from her.

    I consider my friends an object of sentimental value. Without them, I would never have the courage, or the motivation, to be the person I am today. Without my friends, I would have nothing to live for.

    My childhood memorabilia is probably what I cherish most. Sometimes I like taking out my old blankets, toys, and scrapbooks from when I was a youngster just to relive the good old days. I don't know what I would do if anything from my childhood got lost or damaged!

    The quilt my grandmother knitted for me is very special to me. She gave it to me on my birthday, 2 days before she died from a heart attack.

    My Grandmother had a large doll collection, she had a doll I really liked and she gave it to me. I liked the doll, but when she passed away I now love the doll more then I did. It always brings me good memories of her home; I always cry when I think of her and my grandfather. So I will never give it away.

    I have a little stuffed dog i have had since i was a baby. He was my first toy. If anything ever happened to him it would crush me. You also can really see the wear and tear on him from all those years.

    One thing that has great sentimental value to me is my guitar, which was a gift from my piano teacher just before she passed away from lung cancer. I would be heartbroken if I were to ever lose it, and I thing the man is doing a good thing by returning the ball.

    My signature soccer ball of Hernandez on the Mexico professional soccer team has sentimental value to me because I'm a HUGE fan of soccer. My family tells me that some day they'll see me on television. I would return the ball if I were that person. Someday everyone of you will see me on television

    I think what I have that has sentimental value is the cross that hangs on my wall in my bedroom. My great-grandma carved it and she has left us now. I don't know her very well because she died when I was 1, but my parents told me about her and I think it is my responsibility to keep it.

    The most valuble possesion I own is my stuffed animal, Beethoven. I've had Beethoven since I was two years old. He came with me everywhere, he's been to seven different states. He may be falling apart now, but he still sits at home waiting for me. I'll keep him until I give him to my kids.

    The most sentimental valued thing is my family photo album. There are photos from my life when I was little, and some photos now. If I ever lost that, I would feel so bad. The person that gave the soccer ball back to the boy has true citizenship!
