Below is a photo of a lovely bracelet that I wear daily. Daedra started it off several years ago at Christmas with the bracelet and the "yin/yang" (my t'ai chi) bead. Alicia and I have added to it several times.
Last Sunday Alicia, CJ, and Devin gave me two beautiful keepsakes - the round bead with gold dragonflies commemorates my 65th year (it also reminds me of my retirement trip to China); and, the lovely "open lace" to the right of the black/white "yin/yang" is a reminder of the completion of my lacebook. Each bead expresses some significance or positive passage in my life. I am so thankful for all that I have: my faith, my three children with their families, my friends and my health.
