Very Humbled by This

Typically today I would be participating in WW, however upon the arrival of something in the mail today I feel led to share something else with you. I'm sure most of you if not all of you know Train Wreck's blog. Well we all know that a short time ago TW lost a very good friend. This was a man that she loved as a friend and probably more like family. His name is Brad and he was married and had children, his life was lost but he left behind many people who loved and cherished him. So through the pain of this tragedy TW found it in her heart to create a pendant in memory of him and with the help of "A Cowboy's Wife" who wrote a beautiful poem in memory of Brad. These pendants are offered for sale with the proceeds going to Brad's family. So I ordered mine and received it today, and I must tell you that I couldn't have even pictured something more beautiful. It really truly humbles me to wear this, and I will cherish it and hopefully TW will be flooded with requests for this pendant. And the poem card that is enclosed with the pendant is even more heart touching than reading it on the blog. I don't know why but I am just so moved by this story....I guess because I lost my dad a few years ago unexpectedly, he was 50 yrs old I was 27 at the time. At that age I felt cheated, like him being gone wasn't fair because he was so young as was I. I know that all around this world there are loved ones lost young and old and no matter their age it always hurts.. But I hope and pray for Brad's family that they will persevere through this tragedy.

And I hope it's OK TW, but I hijacked the pictures of the pendant to share here on my blog.


  1. It's beautiful, and so gracious of you to get one and support this cause. Even though I don't know her personally, TW seems like such an amazing and compassionate person! I do still hope to order a pendant! What kind of chain or cord did you put it on?

  2. PG- I used a black rope leather necklace from my store. It looks really good, I wore it today and I actually got more comments about this pendant than I have with any of my bling stuff that I wear. It truly is an amazing piece... I hope you get a chance to order one, the cost wasn't bad at all.

  3. The pendant is absolutely beautiful! I am with PG, I would like to get one too!
    You are so amazing doing this post for TW, she has been through so much!

  4. I love it! I need to order one! TW has a huge heart and i think it is a great thing to do for someone!

    I lost my mom when I was 19 and I tell ya that's a hard thing to do! Hugs to you for your loss. I miss her everyday!

  5. TW is one amazing Lady! I sure hope to meet her some day! I truly hope hundreds, thousands of these sell, it is such a good cause and the family can use the help. The silent auction is coming too, I hope they generate a lot of love!!
