i am not a sentimental person. i rarely hold onto things long enough for them to become cherished and dear. when i do, you know that the thing i have kept is truly meaningful. this was a gift from my husband a few years into our relationship. it is a sapphire, my birthstone. i love the necklace, but i love what it means more. when i wear it, it reminds me that i can do anything. he said it best the other day:
“you know what works for me
when im worried about something – i think about you – i know it sounds corny
but i know you always have my back
so that gives me enough support
to make it through anything”
