The Purpose Behind The Necklace



My husband and I was at the mall waiting for our daughter to finish with school and stumbled across a new store that had opened, Altar'd State. As we was browsing through the store my husband came across your necklaces and although I had heard of them I had never seen them in person. I immediately fell in love but couldn't decide which one I wanted because I wanted every one of them! I told my husband to pick so he picked the Faith key necklace. He told me to read the purpose behind the necklace on the display, so I did and this was around noon. Later in the evening we stopped by to see my mother in law who had just had surgery the day before. As we were visiting the doctor came in to talk to the lady who she was sharing a room with, the doctor didn't have good news for the woman she was to leave the hospital the next morning by ambulance to have surgery 2 1/2 hours away as soon as she arrived at the hospital. This poor woman had to digest all this information all on her own, she had no one there with her. As the doctor left I heard the woman crying, I got up and went over to her and said do you need a hug and she just fell apart. After talking with her for a bit I went back to visiting with my family. All I could think about was the purpose behind the necklace, if you feel someone else needs it more than you then you must pass it on. As I was leaving I took it off and walked back over to her bed and gave her another hug, I got her hand and put the necklace in it and told her that I felt she needed it more than I did at this moment. I explained to her the purpose behind the necklace and that when she comes across someone who she feels needs it more than her she is to pass it on as well. This was around 5:30 pm. I honestly thought that I would have my necklace more than 5 1/2 hours, but I know that when the woman is alone in a hospital and scared when she looks at the necklace she will remember me telling her that I would be thinking and praying for her. I don't know her name and she doesn't know mine but that's ok.
