I’m a things friend.
Let me explain:
I love having an object–something unique–to represent or remind me of a specific person. A necklace, that when worn, I remember to think and pray for the friend represented by that necklace.
I know it sounds silly–and well, it is–but for me? It works.
full disclosure: I’m sure sometimes I’ve justified a purchase for this very reason, but… well still.
I stand by it.
I sent a mug home with this girl after the Influence Conference–so every morning, I pray for her as I take my first sip of coffee.
Through a straw, butofcourse.
I still have a slip of paper with some words on one side and a magnet on the other that sits inside my jewelry box–a special keepsake that goes years back. A keepsake that reminds me to pray.
My latest favorite has been these statement necklaces: they are kind of like those best friend heart necklaces we used to have, but for adults.
Or something like that. :o]
I now have a few various colors and styles–and even if I don’t have a matching one with a friend, these necklaces have been named. So when that necklace goes on–I say a prayer.
When I glance in the mirror and see it? I think about them again.
I told y’all I was crazy.
When one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met happened to sell some of the most fun statement jewelry: I was pretty excited to purchase a few items from her. When I also learned that purchases from her teardrop collection donate a portion to My Life Speaks: I started buying and naming necklaces left and right.
I’m not kidding.
So excited to be featuring photos from the lovely Rachel Rowland!
