Blessings Of A Daughter

When I was a little girl who lost her mother the only thing I wanted more than anything was to one day have a daughter. My first baby was an adorable, round baby boy who made me so happy and healed so much of my sadness. Being his mother was/is the most important thing to me. I loved being a mom! I knew that was exactly why I was here, so be his mommy. My son and I have a wonderfully loving relationship but it is as most parent/child relationships different. We love them equally but differently. Having a girl was something I hoped for but if it never happened I was OK with two boys but the good Lord saw fit for me to have a girl. A testing, crazy, funny girl who tries my patience and makes me angrier than anyone ever has in my life. I adore her with every cell in my body and even when she makes me crazy, I want nothing more than to be with her and my handsome.

Goddess and I spent A LOT of time together. She is my shadow and I love it. She goes through my things often but this weekend I took some photos and talked to her more about the jewelry pieces that she likes to play with so much. None of the pieces are worth anything but they mean something to me and Goddess feels like they are treasure. The pieces are mine, some my two Grandmothers, two Great Grandmothers and some my Moms. So when Goddess is looking through the "treasure" she is sifting through four generations of jewelry and it makes me so happy. It is exactly what I thought of when I wished for a daughter.


This time that we went through them I gave her some pieces and she was thrilled. Most were earrings from way back when that are small enough for her to wear along with some necklaces that are just no longer me.

I knew there was a reason I held onto so many of my younger pieces.

Look at all that blue & red jewelry!
