Day 7: The badge

Day Seven: A picture of your most treasured item.

This is my missionary badge: an embodiment of a lifetime of dreaming and preparing.  In the years leading up to my mission, this badge was very much my own Holy Grail--so far away, so legendary, as I quested with great effort to obtain it.  Well, after a long journey I finally won my prize, and for two years, wherever I went, so did the badge.  It identified me in more ways than I can describe; and indeed, no other item has ever so completely illustrated who I was.  I love my missionary badge.
