First I want to say thank you to everyone for the all the beautiful comments last week and making the first week of Sally's Focus on life so special, I tried to make it to all the blogs and really enjoyed reading all of our stories. Secondly, thanks to Lori Anderson for hosting the Memories and Thanks blog hop.
I decided to combine the 2 in one post as they seemed to go together.
I chose the word breathe this year because it really resonated with me in yoga class one day as the instructor said breathe in peace and breathe out tension, but I found this on Pinterest and like it even better.
I know when I breathe in deeply it really calms me and makes me aware of the present moment.
My thanks goes to my mother that gave me my breath and who I miss especially this month as it is her birthday month.
When I first started making jewelry my Mom wanted a simple pearl bracelet so I whipped one up and gave it to her.
When my Mom lost her battle with lung cancer it came back to me in her jewelry box.
In honor of her I decided to re-do the "Dee" bracelet" by hand knotting it in red, one of her favorite colors.
So to honor my mom and honor this beautiful life that I live...
