"Faith." It's as simple as that. And as complicated as that, I guess. It seems rather fitting that the bracelet arrived the day before Holy Thursday. Sometimes we forget what Easter week is really all about. Anyway, really, this is a COINCIDENCE, I swear, that I made this today.......
This silver-plated double tier bracelet is approximately 7 1'4" long with a lobster claw clasp. The charms include a church, a dove, an angel (I know, I know) a fish and of course the letters spelling out "faith." The beads include cracked quartz (which gives a nice sparkly effect) as well as brown and green acrylic bead charms. I think I might just have to wear this one!
The week's been long in the sense that it's the second week of spring break in our house. Yes, I said SECOND week. Last week the girls were home for a week and this week my son is home for the week -- their schools have different spring breaks! AAaaarrrgh! Well, at least all are looking forward to Easter and what the Easter bunny might bring! Next to Christmas, this is a great time to be a parent.
Normally we have a grand Easter Egg Hunt for about 100 people each year around now. Only this year things were just too hectic to pull it off. Hopefully we can reinstitute it again next year. The kids do love it so. Any Easter traditions at your house?
"Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and sudden, startling joys."
