Life is hard. Taking care of a disabled man, living paycheck to paycheck, being slapped in the face with a treatable cancer diagnosis, my life was quickly crumbling around me. I received this necklace as a gift from a friend and it allowed me to take a deep breath and realize that life goes on. I can choose to be strong and live the life I want with the cards I am dealt or crumble and allow myself to be swallowed whole. I choose STRENGTH.
