Capture Your Grief Day 8

Day 8. Jewelry  - First of all, how is it the 8th day of October already?!  It's Columbus Day - last year on Columbus Day,  Coen was born.  It's a very special  "holiday" for me now!  And I am in serious denial that my boy is turning 1 in less than 2 days!!

Back to today's post:

I wear this necklace every day, since the day I got it I have never left the house without it on.  I take it off to sleep and put it on in the morning after I shower.  That's it.  I move it around when nervous or thinking about her.  Coen grabs on it every time I nurse him.

I even had it on the day Coen was born.  It is probably my most prized possession, the one thing I was excited about after losing Adelyn.  A little piece of her, her handprint, to be with me every day.  People comment on it all the time, some ask whose handprint it is, others just say they like it.  That's about as close as I get to getting to "show off" Adelyn.

I love this type of jewelry. I was shown a brochure at the funeral home that showed this and many like it keepsakes. I really want one but they are so dang expensive. I hope to one day get something as precious as yours. Hugs-

Side note: how the heck did you get this picture? lol was someone standing over you on the bed? :)
