I carry your heart with me
(I carry it in my heart)

– e.e. cummings

What a wonderful way to keep a piece of someone forever with you.

This is why I like necklaces that carry stories of people and places I want to remember for a lifetime. More than rings, necklaces drop into my bosom – close to my heart. And when I feel that I need a little reminder of how blessed I am to have love and purpose in my life, my fingers need only reach up and hold the precious trinket in the palm of my hand.
