As I was making this pair of earrings, I found out that a good friend of ours daughter lost her battle with breast cancer today. I was immediately heart broken for their family. Three young boys left with no mother to watch them grow and become men.
It hit home for me. The reality that my cancer may come back is something I am learning to live with day by day. I know others that deal with the same thoughts and anxieties. That’s why it’s important to live everyday to its fullest! God blesses us with today and that is enough.
I’m calling these acrylic and wooden earrings, “Kristen Teardrop Earrings.” It just felt right to include her name as a reminder to all cancer survivors to live in the moment God gives you and be grateful.
