four rings created with words of truth

as a way of keeping our family close in thought

while we experience a journey of growing and leaving

which is really OK for today ... it's exciting ... even expected!

the girls wear them on their pinkies .. mom and dad close to the heart

Elk,
I'm so glad you like the rings and I hope they do remind your girls that no matter what happens out in the world - home is a safe haven. I know it has always made a difference for me.

Thank you and may you be filled with joy!
