Near & Dear

My Christmas gift to myself this year was a silver locket which I have wanted since my daughter was born. I was finally able to buy it after 3 years of waiting. I think the long wait has made it even more special to me, but there's definitely something to be said for instant gratification.

I now wear the locket daily. It doesn't hold the baby picture that I imagined it would when I first pictured owning it. Instead it holds a photo of my daughter dressed as a lady bug. My little love bug.

Now when I am missing her during the day or start feeling overwhelmed, I touch it and think just keep going. It's my reminder of what's dearest to me and gives me a sense of being near to her even when we are apart.
