A cherished treasure!
Back in May I had talked to Paul about wanting a "Mother's Rosary". I wanted all of our birthstones to be represented in the beads of the rosary. Paul's for the Our Father beads, mine for the first three Hail Mary's, and our 10 children (5 that we were blessed to know here on earth and 5 that now grace us in Heaven) would be represented on the beads through each decade. Paul had given me the go ahead to order one; unfortunately, he died before I could even finalize the plans for it.
However, it arrived today... on my birthday, no less. And it is BEAUTIFUL. A cherished symbol of the faith Paul and I shared and the family we created together.
All I can say is, Jennifer... you did a wonderful job. It is so much more than I could have hoped for. Thank-you!
