"I would love to get the Lucky Girl ring. I feel like I'm a lucky girl for having my wonderful husband, great friends and family, and my health. "I have the same ring and can attest to it's quality. I already DM'd you on Twitter. I'll put you in touch with Lisa (aka, @thebeadgirl) on how to collect your store credit.
If you didn't win, you can still browse through Lisa's amazing selection of jewelry at her Etsy site. I have my eye on this ring to add to my collection.
***I think Molly's statement on feeling lucky to have her health and family and friends is a timely one. This has been a hard few days for my circle of friends here in Nashville. My friend Emmett (read about the family's journey through esophageal cancer here) is now in hospice and my friend Jill (who has taken all of our family pictures since we moved to Nashville) found out last week that she has Hodgkin's lymphoma. My heart is heavy for their spouses and children. Cancer sucks. They have some difficult days ahead and I am grateful for the community of prayer that surrounds them.
It sometimes feels a little shallow to be blogging about clothes and food and home decor in the midst of so much heartache, but I should realize as much as anyone that life brings grief and light all at the same time. In the midst of the joy of a new baby, women are abandoned by their husbands for a younger woman and teenagers steal school buses while high as a kite. I know that God is still good, even if i don't understand His goodness.
And kids will continue to always stick Barbie shoes up their noses.
