This one is for you

She opens her box of beads and strings.  Each string a different color and length.  Each bead a different color, shape and size.

She picks a string.  Then, she carefully picks and chooses her beads.

She slips the chosen beads through the string.  One bead follows another – in rhythmic sequence.

Until she has a perfect string of beads.

Then, she ties the two ends of the string together to make a bracelet.

 She slips the bracelet on a little girl’s hand.

 And says to her, ‘This one is for you.’

I dedicate this to every strong and beautiful woman that was kind and generous enough to express her admiration for the strings of words I share with all of you each day.

  1. I like this. Especially te symbolism of placing it onto the little girls hand which I read in two ways; firstly passing the process on to the next generation and secondly it could be taken that the little girl is still within each of us.
