Ill Tell you how to sparkle like a star. Many of you are aware of the tragic summer here and loosing my ex to suicide in my home,...8 months later my beloved 185 pound dog titus passed away in my arms. Life was exhaustive and some days I couldn't see the light. One afternoon on the darkest day, preparing for Christmas with my companion Titus dead not days before and my ex partner dead with Christmas looming in a week a box arrived. I didn't recognize the address, I opened it and this came out with a personal note from a women I have always desperately loved and respected. I stood in my empty kitchen surrounded by mail and then leaned on my counter and then quite frankly fell to my knees and cried. I cried tears from my core not only for my loss but for the kindness of one women named Carol. The kindness to share a bracelet of hope as my world was falling apart. In that moment Carol reminded me that God was near, she showed me that I wasn't alone, and that people are in the end, kind , full of love and care. I have not taken it off, the cross of magic, it is a touchstone for me now. On my wrist I have ,.. a sterling bracelet I had made for my lost partner Merle his favorite Apache blessing, he was cherokee "May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life. – Apache Blessing" I have my sweet dog Titus' wrist band and my Carol Brodie piece of hope. Give this bracelet to everyone who lost someone to everyone one on a journey of addiction and recovery to anyone who needs hope thru surgery. Share this piece of Gods love and joy to remind people of a better world . I sent one to my friend to wear until her so comes home from the war. My neice wears one in red to remember her high school friend who passed away. Full endorsement for this "bracelet of light and hope" I love it and have shared it with many. See it not as jewelry but literally wear "your heart on your sleeve." When someone asks you about it you can share your story and then listen share your support for theirs,.
