other silver strands

I'm so happy to announce the winner of my latest giveaway
(check out her blog ~ she is one of the wittiest bloggers ever!)
and THANK YOU to those who entered - don't give up ... a new giveaway as soon as we hit 100 followers!
I'm anxious to hear about silver strands in your life ...
to get you thinking, here are the silver strands my Mom gave to me before I left her home this weekend. She's had this bracelet since I was a little girl. I plan to wear it often so I can keep her with me.
Silver Strands come in all forms:
a smile, a kind comment, a meal, a visit ...
and Silver Strands are all around us, we just need to keep our eyes and hearts open to recognize them.
Any Silver Strands you'd like to share with me?

  10. What a lovely bracelet! I don't think I own any silver strands yet, but I have a brooch from my grandma which is very dear to me.

  11. What a beautiful bracelet. My silver strand would a small gold pin of two doves with a tiny pearl my grandfather gave to me as a little girl. Whenever I feel like I can't keep going I take it out and remember how he use to tell me to never give-up.

  13. New Follower!

    And YOU'RE my silver strand for today, since discovering your blog through a lovely comment :)

    My dad died of cancer when I was 6 (I'm 17 now) so I know what it feels like when you find out your parent is ill. This blog is amazing, and that selfless thing you did for your mum during her difficult time is amazing!

    Lots of love, Laura


  14. Hello! I am so happy that you found me so that I could find you!
    What an amazing daughter you are. You must have an amazing mom. :)

    I can really relate to you and your situation because my mom is living with us. She has cancer and is Hospice right now and doing really well. It is a very unique experience.
    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
    I am not quite the daughter that you are- I am not shaving my head. Ha ha- but I did shave my Mom's. It is slowly growing back in. She can't wait to color it again. LOL
    Wonderful to find you and will check back often,

  15. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I adore yours! I love the idea behind it, and you and your mom are both absolutely gorgeous! You have so much strength and courage you're so empowering! I will definitely be following your blog!
