I am shiny and clear. At least that is what one friend told me today. As an early birthday present, she made me a bracelet. It has all clear beads with one seashell (a shout-out to the California girl in me). So, she made this gift with the idea that I am ‘shiny and clear’ floating around in her head.
I have been described with a number o adjectives in my life, but ‘Shiny’ and ‘Clear’ have never been used. And I love it. I would love to think that I shine, even if it is just a little. And ‘clear’….it sounds so clean and fresh. I love this as well.
I hope that it means I am a good friend and enjoyable to be around.
Wow! Are girlfriends ever important? I am reminded on a daily basis, just how beautiful it is to be surrounded by women who love and cherish you, who recongize your strengths and weaknesses, who talk you through challenges. Who tell you when you need to ‘shape up’ and who tell you when you are Shiny and Clear.
This is my goal…I’m adding it to my list of resolutions….I want to always be described by these two little words: Shiny and Clear. In fact, I want to celebrate it! Thank you, Elizabeth.
And I’m going to teach my kids to be the same.
