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.
