Lily carries the mouse bones, which could be old enough to be from a mouse her mother once saw. Nevertheless, the mouse bones might have a distant connection to her mother. Sometimes people do unexpected things because of their emotions. Lily is feeling sentimental enough to do something that might seem crazy, and she seems unclear about why the bones might signify something special about her mother.
