It fits perfectly

Its fits perfect.

Isn’t it beautiful, as you can see the engraving says Livvy, This was my beautiful daughters bracelet. She loved wearing it and was forever showing it off to anyone anywhere, bless her.

When we lost Livvy I didn’t know what to do with her bracelet I didn’t want it just to sit in a box and fade and tarnish. Like my memories I want to hold it close. Then my husband suggested I had the bracelet made bigger and wear it. I went through many emotions will I damage it? What if it broke? Is it right? In the end I knew Livvy would love me to wear it and enjoy it as she did. I know there are many treasures in heaven. Livvy would be pleased I am enjoying one of her earth based one.

So here it is extended for my wrist and fitting perfectly.  Does it fill my heart with joy every time I look at it, yes in a way! Will my heart ever be full to the brim with joy again? I don’t think so. While I know without a doubt that Livvy is free from the pain her earthly body brought her and is in the wondrous realm of heaven. I cannot shift the pain of my grief 100%. I miss her too much. Though I now see life not as one more day without her, but one more closer to us being united. I thank God everyday for my faith and for making me realise it fits perfectly.

    I think this is a beautiful idea, a wonderful way to feel closer to your daughter and feel a bit of the joy she would have felt when she was wearing it.
