A Living Charm Bracelet

Sweet memories are like charms on a bracelet, jingling precious rememberings of life's happy moments.

If the past four days were dangling from shiny circles of silver, there would be lips... for the kiss good-bye to Mike that had to hold me over for the five days he would be in Arizona...without me. A truck... for the sleigh ride that whisked Shannon and I to the fall-colored coast, for our annual rendevouz of friendship. The word "Sisters" for the twenty-three-and-a-half-year-old friendship we share. A beachball.... for the 'ball' we had on our three days at the beach. A bible.... for the fellowship we enjoyed, with each other and Jesus, who goes everywhere with us. A telephone... that was the only way we were connected to the sweet nothings of our Hubby Dears. A basket... because we each brought one, filled with items to ensure girlyhood. A frenchfry... because, twice, we shared french fries smothered in ketchup. (I would put a coin... for all the shopping, but we spent them all!)

It's the little things in life that add up to a bracelet-full of things cherished. Don't let memories just sit there....let them dangle in front of you....for lots of happinesses remembered. :)

It was wonderful! I never thought in terms of a charm braclet, but I will forever more! We are sisters, yippee!
