But I’m not in a panic because this weekend for the first time since November I looked into my son’s eyes. I hugged him and felt his arms around me. And even though MY conditions for no longer wearing the necklace aren’t quite met I know in my heart that everything’s going to come in it’s own time and everything’s going to be okay.
Just in case I wasn’t completely clear on that message I fixed the necklace and before the day was through it broke again. I know it can be repaired with the proper tools but now I’m in no hurry. I’ve talked in an earlier post about God winks. This was more like a God shove. He was telling me “Hey, I’ve got it from here. It’s time for you to stop worrying.”
Once repaired, I’ll still wear the heart and cross on occasion but it will simply be a gentle reminder to appreciate the joy in life and to treasure each day. It will be a tangible reminder that even our darkest days end.
I’m grateful…for so many things.
