A tennis racket to remind me to take time for myself to do something I really enjoy and that brings me good health and happiness. A graduation cap to remind me of my commitment to quality higher education for my students and for my children. (It truly does remind me to check on one of my son’s math grades!).
A charm that depicts a plate with a slice of apple pie ala mode and a fork. This reminds me of my wonderful husband – a man who married me and took on the responsibility of a woman with four young children. Every day he does all that I ask of him and the only appreciation he requires is an interesting dessert at night when he watches television. Apple pie is his favorite and I’ve been buying more and more little cakes and pies at the grocery store and baking less and less as my to-do list gets longer. This charm reminds me to slow down, peel some apples, roll out a crust, and bake for him.
A soup ladle because my children feel loved when they come home to find me ladling a steaming homemade chicken noodle or broccoli cheese soup for them.
A plane to remind me of my desire to see as much of this beautiful world as possible.
I love meeting women and helping them to determine their own priorities. And I absolutely love listening to women share their priorities with one another as they admire each other’s bracelets.
I hope your Priority Bracelet will help you become more aware of your priorities. Use it for prayer, for meditation, or as a gentle reminder of why you are you – a unique and beautiful person with a life like no other!
