I bought this bracelet because of recently passing on my first of the kind. My story involves misunderstanding and tribulations that I had never expected to be in. However, with having gone through such, I am thankful. You do not always ask for nor expect the experiences that life provides you, yet you receive them nevertheless. I cannot blame anyone for such events, but I can be thankful for them. I have grown and learned so much from the unexpected times–these unforgettable events. I can only grown from them and appreciate them for what they are and what they have provided me. I am thankful beyond belief…for anything and everything that I have been through while wearing this bracelet. It is not about the bracelet, but rather what has been experienced while having it be apart of my life and me. I am thankful for everything…everything that has been apart of my life and made me consider such. I regret nothing.
