Dear my beloved...

I had no knowledge it were to be true...
It didn't even cross my mind to look for you...
Until dawn arrived I was as happy as can be...
That is...until you were no longer with me...

Honestly and truly written by yours truly ~ Martha {applause}....just kidding everyone...no applause...please don't get the wrong idea about that...but I haven't written anything in such awhile that literally just came out like that...{silly I make myself laugh}

This morning couldn't be better...that is until I stepped out of the shower and touched my neckline...and found my sweet beloved not in its place...

My Beloved...my past, present, and future necklace...

Given to me by my wonderful hubby on our anniversary...I love this gift...it has meaning...it was given in love...

...It makes my heart go a little pitter patter... {sorry my pics aren't the clearest of all...couldn't seem to figure that out today}
A smile it always gives me...

It is a necklace to me that I have never taken off except occassionally to wear a different one...and I have been excellent about it always staying in my room...even my hubby noticed I have been great about it... {a little background...sometimes I misplace things which is why my wonderful hubby got me a jewerly box}
...but he knows I never take it off...and oh this morning...it was gone...and not in my favorite spot...around my neck...

it is something I always touch when I am out of the shower...a little habit...routine {I am good at routine}...and when I went to touch it this morning...nope...not there...my beloved was gone...

I am 100% sure it fell off because I never took it off...I just didn't know where it fell off...yesterday I had a meeting in the morning and was at home for the remainder of the day...so I knew it could only be in our home...it was just a matter of where...and I knew that whenever it fell off...that one of my beloved kiddos had to have picked it up...and I won't name any names {a-hem...my youngest} loves to play with it when it is around my neck...

A quick little scurry around the house...and no time to find it before an engagement this morning. In between a few things this morning...I stopped at home as I had to get something for a friend anyway...and looked into my little girl's rooms...and YEP...found it in the youngest...the pendant at least...the necklace is missing in action...but at least I had the important part...don't get me wrong...it's not like I can throw around money and just replace everything...but I would rather have found the pendant than not my beloved at all...I have faith I will find that necklace chain today...after all it can't be far...

See Hayley has found a new love for necklaces... I remember Madison going through this stage at about this age when my other "beloved"...my wedding ring...miraculously vanished...hmmm....thankful and happy my beloved {necklace} is now in safe keeping...I can rest assured I will give my hubby a big fat hug and "smooch-a-rue" when he arrives home tonight...just to remind him how much it means to me...my beloved necklace...
Happy Friday you all...I'm starting to feel the excitement...the wait is almost over...it is almost here...I plan to do some posts there...so enjoy your day...

...Oh and this picture of my oldest beloved...taken yesterday...but the picture is how I feel at the moment since my beloved has been found...so happy and giddy... Oh and I must say again...my dear beloved...I am so thankful I found you! Have a wonderful weekend...Blessings to you!

Hi, I discovered your blog via Angela Harris...so glad I did. Love how you share your life! Some years ago I lost my engagement ring for what seemed like an eternity and I cried and prayed like never before...not for its monetary value but because it was from my husband...he found it in the spare bedroom and when I saw it sparkling in his hand I thought it was a dream...and new it was a miracle...
