and then I will explain…..
“I just sent you an email of a blog that one of my dear friends wrote with a picture of an angel necklace. The angel made me think of you for many reasons, but mostly because of your love for angels. When I read the blog I knew she was meant to be yours. I admire you and Lettie so much for your talents and the way you pursue them. Now the three of us are connected and that makes me happy.
I wore this angel for a day – touching her, thinking of you, praying for you, knowing that one day you would wear her and think of me and she would lift your spirits as she did mine. I know Lettie wore the angel necklace also as she does all her necklaces and thought of the unknown person that it would find a home with. Now it’s time for this angel to take flight to her new home.”
This is a copy of a note that a dear friend of mine included with the angel necklace shown below. The necklace was a gift to a woman who has just entered seminary at Princeton. The blog that she references is one that I wrote called “on the tiptoes of my Fred Flintstone feet” dated 10/7/2011. There are many things about this angel that reminded me of where I am in my life at present. She also represents many of my friends and the questions and subsequent faith that they have in themselves. Perhaps she is a reminder to you of some of your acquaintances as well. The above note is confirmation to me that we are all connected….
Nothing makes me happier than when I find out that a piece of my jewelry turns out to be more than just jewelry. And like this angel – I am still standing on my tip toes…..
