Look at this beautiful necklace that just arrived from my dear, dear friend Roda of Growing Self Blog!
It arrived in this package
Roda had told me that she was sending me something for my birthday, which was earlier this month. It was such a hassle for her because we were bouncing between homes. Mail forwarding messed up the delivery and she had to resend it! I told her how sorry I was that this was turning into an ordeal, but Roda persevered!
This amazing woman also included a heart felt note that made me tear up!
What Roda did not know, what she could not know, was that due to the delays this arrived on the anniversary of the worst day of my life. The day, two years ago, that threw my life into a tailspin, one that I was not sure I would recover from. The day that caused me to, 6 months later, begin this blog, and the quest to become visible again. I did not feel “strong, bold and brave” that day. I felt alone, invisible and irrelevant.
I look at my life today and it is so different from that time, but then other days the pain can hit, and it is as if it was only moments ago. For Roda to send this to me now, means all the world to me. It is more than just a sweet thought from a kind and warm person.
I will wear this and think of you, my dear, dear friend! One who has touched my life and helped me through the fire. Love you lady!
