Karen sent me five charms for my bracelet and they are gorgeous! She sent Crystal, Aquamarine, Rose, Aurora Borealis (rainbow-like crystal), and Silver Shade.
Her daughter wanted to bless me as well, so she sent me this beautiful Swarovski pen. The picture doesn't do it justice, it is so pretty and pink!
The candles Karen sent smell so sweet, too!
Here is my bracelet with the new charms added on. I will continue to earn one for each ten pounds I lose and will think of the new five beads as representation of those who I've inspired and will inspire in the future.
I'm so touched by this gift. Karen wanted to bless me and I feel blessed and completely spoiled! Karen, thank you for this blessing and thank you for wanting to represent my blog readers with this gift. I blog with the hope to touch someone out there, to inspire them to make a change in their life to be healthier. I don't post my weight out there for the world to see for selfish reasons. I don't post pictures of myself to be recognized. Sure, it feels great to be complimented and have my accomplishments recognized, but that isn't what drives this blog or my facebook page. I simply want to inspire other people to make changes in their lives to be healthy and live long, full lives. I want those who are struggling with their weight to be inspired to do something about it and to finally face the challenge. I want to be able to help other people out there to break away the chains that come along with being overweight and to find their freedom. If I can inspire ONE person through this blog, it is all worth it. I am so touched by this gift and humbled by it as well.
