Celebrate the Small Things - A Blog Hop Post


Celebrate the Small Things

Gosh!  It’s Friday again and time to Celebrate the Small Things!

Dave knocked my socks off last Christmas with the gift of a silver link bracelet with diamond chips throughout.  Living the philosophy of saving “nice” things for “special” occasions, I wear it daily.  In fact, the only time it comes off my wrist is when I’m on the mower.  Well, a couple of days ago I thought I had lost it.  Figured the clasp broke or came open somehow and . . . it was gone.  I tell ya, I was truly in tears trying to accept that it was MIA but still refusing to believe it was gone; I still felt a spiritual connection to it.

Yes, it is “just” a bracelet, but Dave obviously took great care in selecting it and enjoyed seeing me all silly-girly-giddy-mushy when opening it Christmas morning.

A couple of hours later, there, on the ground by our RV . . . relief! 


It is tucked away until I can get to the jeweler to see about getting a different clasp.

That’s it for this week.  Of course, there’s always the celebration of being being alive and essentially healthy, the nice weather we’ve been having the past week and . . . well, stuff!

What are you celebrating today?



  1. Oh my goodness, glad you found it!

  2. I celebrate my hubby getting back to NJ. Friends who have shown they care. Getting more patience such as typing one letter at a time s l o w ly and using the back space a LOT. So glad you found that precious gift.

    1. Phyllis, thank you for sharing your celebrations. Been celebrating for you!

  3. I'm so glad you found it! Now, go get a really super secure clasp so you can continue to wear it and smile at it when you do :)

  4. Glad to hear you found it! And no, I don't think it's JUST a bracelet; it's the meaning and significance behind them that makes them truly special.
