Happiness in a Box

In the midst of my fatigue and tears Monday afternoon, I found the following in my mailbox…

The irony of the timing was not lost on me.

I eagerly dug into it and discovered that I’d received my Origami Owl order…the one I’d placed about a week before.

I’d been admiring these trinkets for a while now but finally decided to splurge on one for myself.

Selecting the charms was so much fun, and I took great care that each one represented a special part of my life…

I was thrilled when I’d discovered a “blog” charm.  The bone represents my love for my fur babies.  The maple leaf represents my Canadian birth and heritage.  Sunflowers are my favorite, and the knitting needles and yarn speak for themselves.  Of course, my locket wouldn’t be complete with the books, given my lifelong love of reading.

Probably the most important charm is the one that says “faith.”

Despite being discouraged of late, my faith has never wavered.  I simply do not know how people survive without putting their trust in God.

I added the locket to the long chain I’d purchased and was so pleased with the look I’d created…

I know that earthly things provide temporary happiness when compared with eternal blessings, but still…that moment of joy when I opened my bling was much-appreciated and much-needed.
