189/365 – Bracelet I had made for Em from 2 Sisters Handcrafted Etsy shop Colleen from 2 Sisters is a doll to work with and does beautiful work. The bottom one I had made for my mother. When she was born, my grandpa’s friends were all ribbing him about having a girl first. They all had boys first. Grandpa quoted them some Keats “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. That shut them right up. I’m giving it to her for Mother’s Day next month.
191/365 – Angel Wings from Em…it has the boys’ initials on the back. She gave it to me just a few days after Jack and Aaron were born. She has one just like it with Jack and Aaron’s initials on the back.
192/365 – Necklace also from 2 Sisters Handcrafted Etsy shop I had this made for myself at the same time I had Em and Mom’s bracelets made. I cried a little when I received it and saw the little birthstones nestled inside. It’s similar to one a dear blogger friend had made for me after Greyson went to Heaven. The two sides go together like a sort of locket and the jewels are hidden inside. It has a star stamped on one side and a heart with wings on the other so I can wear it either way. I like it because their names are not out there for every stranger to see and ask about and it makes a small sound as I move around. I don’t need a locket to keep them close but I like to hear that little sound.
193/365 – “Mother’s” ring from the Yayas. They all came over the week after the funeral and presented it to me. I was hurting so badly I’m afraid I was kind of a brat about it saying I didn’t want a present because it wouldn’t bring my boys back. But now I wear it every day. The center stone is for my Greyson’s December birth and of course the two side stones are for Jack and Aaron’s in September. I think they look beautiful together but I sure wish they were April and January stones.
