Gifts From My Grave (Heart)

Onecklace contacted me regarding a review and I jumped at the chance to have them create a necklace with my daughters name on it for her Birthday. The  thing is, I didn’t want it for her upcoming 6th birthday I wanted it for her sweet 16th.

In the past few months I have been gathering gifts for my Children’s special occasions in-case I die. Sounds crazy I know, but my parents are old and my husband is unlikely to pass on the gesture. Life is crazy, life is unpredictable, life is cruel.  So yesterday I sat and wrapped a beautiful pair of diamond earrings for my daughter to wear on her wedding day.  Am I crazy? This is something I NEED to do. Does that make it selfish?

I wrapped my daughter’s custom made necklace in some tissue paper and made a little bow. My hand written note smudged by the tears that rolled down my cheeks as though I had already parted from her. I told her how much I loved her even though I was no longer with her. The thought of my babie’ grief takes hold and I sob as I finish the job at hand.

When I laid in bed that night I felt like I had achieved a big step, admitting life was precious and a small step in making my little baby feel better on her 16th birthday. Imagining her popping that necklace around her neck thinking of my sweet hugs and sweet kisses.  (now I am crying again).

    Dear Shellie
    I don’t usually post comments etc despite loving the site but I had to on this occasion. I was diagnosed with cancer 18 months ago and have a 12 year-old son and 6 year-old daughter. Luckily, following a series of operations and chemotherapy, I am now clear but your post made me cry (in fact, I am crying now writing this). Having had cancer has made me re-evualate my life and decide what is really important. To this end, I have not resumed my career but have started a craft business which is something I have always wanted to do. I am also making sure that the time we have as a family is as happy as it can be as it is so precious, especially as children grow up so quickly these days. I hope you don’t mind but I will be stealing your amazing idea for both my children – more difficult for a boy, I know,- so that, should my cancer return in the future, I will not regret my possibly not being there at the most important days of their lives. Thank you for the inspiration. Siâron

    How wonderfully thoughtful & considerate! I did not think it was selfish. We just had a life scare 2 years in a row & find your idea would be a comfort in case something were to happen. Love your site.
