My Favorite Necklace & Why I Get One Every Year


{this post is was written for my one word of 2015.  Stay tuned for an upcoming post with my one word for this year!}

Every year I choose one word to keep close to my heart throughout the year.  This year my word is ‘COMPLETE,’ and I literally keep it close to my heart by wearing it on a special necklace.  I have a tradition of getting a one word necklace each year with my ‘word’ on it from our dear  Krafty Kash, and it is always so special to me.

Let me tell you why I chose the word ‘COMPLETE.’

Almost 1 year ago I was at a conference called Refresh My Heart that was put on here in Nebraska by my friend Lelia Chealey.  I was  looking forward to the retreat for so many reasons.  My sweet pink sister Karen, whom I met through this blog, was coming all the way from California to be with me and attend the retreat. She was there to support, for I was speaking on “How To Fully Live While Facing Death.”  I am a two-time cancer survivor, one whose chances of living a long life has been cut short by cancer.

When we arrived to the conference, at the sign in table there were tiny little boxes that had each of our names on them. We were to carry them with us and NOT to open them until we were told. The anticipation was super fun and I wondered what was in the box…

…I’m writing about my one word choice from last year over at Krafty Kash today. Join me for the rest of the story of how I am living ‘complete’ & to see how the necklace looks on me over there?
