Pendant #103 – Connection Across the Ocean

Dec 15, 2020 | Support

Connection is the cornerstone of this company, and the story of pendant 103 is a story of connection.  This was the very first pendant that I ever made…and to be honest, I never intended to part with it, but sometimes connection happens and plans change.

We were living in England when my daughter got very, very sick.  While in the hospital a friend I had only met once reached out to me to let me know she was thinking of us during such a difficult time.

From that day forward this old, new friend and I continued to write to one another about motherhood, work, daily struggles and joys.

And this is the beautiful thing about connection.  When two people are willing to be real and raw and reveal their brokenness to one another, connection can swoop right in, traveling across oceans and through computer screens to heal wounds. And that’s just what happened.

As we continued to write to one another, her struggles were my struggles; her pain was my pain, and I could see so much of myself in her despite the fact we had only met one brief time.  I was moved to pass my pendant along to her so I packed it up and sent it traveling over the ocean from Salisbury, England to Dayton, Ohio.

When she received it she wrote me the following:

“NOTHING feels like it’s going right.  I needed something, ANYTHING and then there, right on my table was a little gift.  I didn’t know what to expect…And suddenly I knew what it was.  It was the strength to…get through everything in good time.  A reason to dust myself off and remember I will always have my strength.  I truly cannot believe it came today.  A little miracle in my chaos.”

That’s connection at work – a circle of safety for our souls.
