Daily Prompt: gift for kindred spirits

The Daily Prompt for photographers today on The Daily Post is gift.  This bracelet was given to me by my best friend on my birthday.  She is the kind of friend who understands me, does not judge me, and at the same time is honest with me when giving advice.  She knows my reactions before I even begin to react.  She also purchased one of these bracelets for herself.  Since we live miles apart from one another, it is a way for each of us to feel our kindred spirits.  She is “my person.”

I adore this bracelet.  I have loved wearing it often since receiving it.  But, just a couple of days ago, my best friend gave me some heart wrenching news…her husband has been diagnosed with leukemia.  I took a picture of this bracelet and sent it to her after a phone conversation filled with tears.  I informed her that I would wear this bracelet every day until her husband gets well.

This bracelet is beautiful, given from the heart, daily reminding me of how special this friendship is to me.  Now I wear it in honor of her husband in hopes to give both of them strength, courage, and hope.  In hopes that she will feel my presence even though I am not physically there.  My best friend, “my person”, I love you.
