Of Love and Gratitude

I once read that if the only prayer you ever said was 'Thank You' it would be enough. Every year around Mother's Day I am reminded how much time has gone since my mother's pass and how much I miss her. Without being too sentimental I do have a lot of gratitude to express, thank you for:

* the mother who brought us here, regardless of what our relationship may or may not be with her.

* the people that love us and protect us on our life journey.

* a little bit of luck that walks with us along our path.

* the immense value of a true friend.

I love to give very simple gemstone jewelry as gifts. Gemstones are delightful to give and they carry a certain characteristic that you can subtly express to the receiver.
Rose Quartz - Gentle Love

Pearl - Gratitude, Motherhood

Black Onyx - Protection

Turquoise - Friendship
To you all, with LOVE,
