Story Behind Our Moms's Name Charm Necklace
This is the story of our Moms' Name Charm Necklace that we thought you would enjoy.
Going back to work after having a
baby is not as easy as it looks. Everyday before I leave the house, I
take little Emily in my arms and breathe deep into her tiny neck. I
inhale this gloriously lovely smell that only babies have. She coos and
squirms. Sometimes a warm and gooey dribble of spit smears my cheek.
Then I look at her beautiful face and stare at her striking blue eyes
that are so similar to my husband's. I tell her she's beautiful.
Today as I go through this
routine, the phone in my purse makes a sound and demands my attention. I
get the urge to put Emily down and grab the phone but I resist. I let a
couple more of messages go unread. Again, I turn my attention to my
precious little girl and shower her face with tiny kisses. Finally, I
gently lay her down on the fluffy pink blanket in her crib.
Before walking out the door, I
leave a few last-minute instructions for the nanny. Would you be
surprised if I tell you I leave the house tearful?
Twenty minutes into our car ride, at a stoplight, my husband looks at me. "It's difficult for you, isn't it?"
I respond, "Yes". He rubs my
back, then holds hand before giving it a kiss. "It is for me, too but I
know it's even more for you." He then pulls out a small box from his
pocket and places it on my lap. The light turns green. From the box I
pull out a pretty silver chain. Hanging from it is a round pendant,
delicately thin. On its front, Emily's full name is etched in beautiful
handwriting. On the back is the day we had her. Just a little above the
pendant, in between two twisted nooks, is a pretty yellow stone. I
smiled at him as I put it around my neck. He smiles back and says, "I
can't wait to get home to "Emily."
