When Poppy was born,
my parents told us we could choose something special as a gift.
We had a long thought about it,
and came up with a wish.
But like many things in life,
it seemed that the right time wasn't there yet
to make the final decision to go and buy such luxurious gift.
Poppy gave me
(me, because Kees was out of town)
the scare of my life.
She got lost in the house,
at night time,
nowhere to be found.
I was hysterical
I thought I lost her.
After 10 horrifying minutes,
with all the neighbours searching with me,
we found her sleeping in Kiefer bed.
The little trooper made the journey up the stairs by herself
and found a better bed to sleep in!
I'm still recovering....
(Kiefer was with me at the time)
When I saw this necklace many, many months ago,
I knew it was the one for me.
After friday-night's incident,
I knew the time had come to go out and buy her.
It's a golden bell with a beautiful golden necklace.
Used for those who got lost
and need to come home again.
May our children always hear the little bell
around our necks
and find their way home safely
from their life travels.
Thank you, Mum and Dad
I'll never take it off!
