The necklace is a special one. My husband gave it to me for my birthday when I was pregnant. Cara's due date was June 30, and I was absolutely certain that she was going to come early, so I asked for a pearl something since June's birthstone is a pearl. And I received this lovely:

on a completely different note:
I don't know if anyone has really noticed, but I have been on a complaining binge lately (as evidenced by this, this, and this). I have been getting on my own nerves with all of this whining, so I have decided that the month of November will be 30 Days of Gratitude. Sounds a little hokey with Thanksgiving and all that, but it is by divine design that our holidays and seasons of celebration fall this way. We have the season of Thanksgiving so that we can stop and appreciate the little (or big) things of this world that we are blessed with, and then we have Christmas to stop and appreciate the VERY BIG thing NOT OF THIS WORLD that we are blessed with. I can't think of better way to prepare my heart for that than to stop and be thankful for something every day of November.
I hope that some of my blog friends (new this week and ones who have been reading all along) will share things they are thankful for or perhaps write their own 30 Day of Gratitude and post links in the comments. I would love to read about the blessings in other people's lives, and I am really looking forward to my own intentional attitude adjustment.
