I've been wanting this necklace from therhouse couture ever since she's opened her etsy store and it was posted on there. My MIL gave me a gift card for Christmas and I was telling John that was what I was going to buy while we were in Indiana. My mom was in the room as well and was asking me "why in the world would you want a necklace that said eventually?" John says I handled the situation well (which is a good thing). I don't remember what I said, just being offended that she a) didn't understand and b) would kind of make fun of me for wanting it didn't bode well for me responding well... but thankfully, I did.
Anyway, I didn't order it while we were in Indiana and then life happened and while I didn't forget about the necklace, I did forgot to order it. So a few weeks ago when I got on after Valentine's day to order the necklace it wasn't there. I was so sad! (it's back now and I still will order it at some point in time)... So I started looking to see what else they had. I found this beauty...(my pictures don't do it justice and it's not on their website at the moment).
This necklace is so perfect for me! I say this phrase all the time and I truely believe it, too! When I found it I showed it to John who said "It even sounds like you!" So he bought it for me!
All my students and other kids I'm around love that I have "a necklace with words". They all try to figure out what it says. One girl that I'm particularlly close with read it and just smiled. She thought it was perfect for me too.
I've used it in teaching lessons at church.
I've used it to remind myself that I'm not in ultimate control. Especially when I found out this past weekend that my dear friend is moving away this summer. I've kept telling myself "everything happens for a reason." I don't know that it has made it any less emotional, but it has helped by giving it a purpose. Even if I don't know what that purpose is yet.
So to mrs. r and her crew... thanks for my newest necklace and giving me reason to find purpose in everything!
