At the end of this week.....peace came.
Last Saturday, before the Circus started, I went to a garage sale that one of my friends, Phyllis, was working at. I looked ravishingly lovely with my hair askew and no make up on. Phyllis handed me a pretty little cotton bag and said *here, I got ya something*.
She had taken the time to look through my pinterest and find my board *Yes you may buy me this*. ~laffin~ Why yes I am a shy person. Why would you ask me that? Anyway....back to my story. And she had bought me this leather bracelet that I wanted so badly from jewelry artist Laurel Denise. Click HERE to go to her store. The bracelet says "She lives life in her own fairytale". Totally me right?!?!?!?

When she gave me this bracelet last Saturday, neither she nor I realized what a life line it would be for me. I have worn it all week and it has given me strength.
Sometimes I don't think we realize how much our acts of kindness mean to people. Actions, words, gifts and tokens can be talismans when those clowns come around.
This little bracelet gave me some supernatural power this week. It helped me to finally find my big girl panties, dry my eyes and recognize that goodness and love win every.single.time.
This week, this little bracelet is what love looked like to me.
