I've had my eyes on a certain Etsy Shop for a while now, but I've never actually bought any of their items because I just couldn't decide which one I liked best . . . or I wanted to wait for a special occasion . . . or I would rationalize that I don't usually wear a lot of jewelry anyway. However, the jewelry that I do wear is very likely to have sentimental value or a deep meaning behind it. So last week as I was browsing, a particular necklace jumped out at me more than the rest and seemed to "call" to me- (seriously, it was almost supernatural!)
I am IN LOVE with this necklace:
And . . . I splurged and bought it!
What's the occasion? My husband and I will soon be approaching our third year of waiting to adopt and this necklace and the message behind it will literally give me something to hold on to while we continue to wait and hope and pray for our "eventually".
I can just imagine me fidgeting with it at the next baby shower I attend or the next time I hear that someone's pregnant (again)- not out of nervousness or jealousy, but out of hope and a sense of solace and comfort.
Eventually . . . it's a good reminder.
