My favorite bracelet that I’ve given someone is one that my mom and I both have: “Be anxious for nothing” (Philippians 4:6). This one will always be special to me because my mom and I wore the bracelets during her battle against ovarian cancer (she is healthy today - so thankful for that). My mom was so brave during her surgeries and chemotherapy treatments and we often reminded each other to “be anxious for nothing” - - God is good and he was walking through that challenging season with us. Call me crazy - but I really felt like the bracelets held some sort of super strength inside of them and we always felt comforted when we wore them. If I wasn’t with my mom for a treatment, we’d send pictures of our wrists to each other, and when I was with her, we’d look down at our bracelets together and feel like we really could tackle the next step in her cancer battle.
2020 has been a year for the books. We’ve lost control of many things that we didn’t expect to. But we still have control of our words and whether or not we use them for good. Buy a bracelet for yourself. Live out that affirmation. Buy a bracelet for a friend. Give them confidence and comfort when they need it most. Kind words are truly priceless. Let’s all go spread some love.
