This year is flying by!
Seems like the Christmas trees were just put away, and now we are well into the throes of Spring. Whether you live in an apartment, house, boat, or condo, the flowers and budding trees are all around! The smell of Spring’s perfume and the fresh cut grass create a bit of a circus in one’s nose.
With the year flying by, I wanted to whisper in your ear a thought. Mother’s Day is right around the corner! When it comes to gift giving, it seems like this is the one special day that needs just the right touch. After all, that seems to be what a mother does, right?
So, again, I wanted to whisper in your ear. As I put my hand up to my neck, I take a moment to feel the charm that hangs there.
It dawned on me, I wanted to get these thoughts into your hands too.
Every day I wear a necklace that has Mico’s paw print on it. It’s such a reminder of so many things… the unconditional love she represented. A special part of my life where she was the star. A chapter of my life that was significant, on so many levels. While it’s a piece of sterling silver, it’s oh-so-much more than that. In fact, I couldn’t even begin to tell my insurance guy the value of the piece to insure it, as it’s truly priceless. The sentiment is worth millions.
There. I wanted to get that little tidbit to you so you could have an idea of just the perfect thing, for just the perfect Mom, step-Mom, daughter, grandma, aunt, or friend…. I can’t even begin to put into words how special my little charm is, and how many things that dime-size piece of jewelry means to me.
And, sometimes, it gives me just the right amount of courage to face the day. Just by giving that little piece a gentle little tug or rub. Just like when she was here
