On the first was a stone, a pebble to be more precise, i aquired it when doing a bit of contemplation in our work chapel. I'm not religious. At all. But our chapel at work is a beautiful place, i work in a Hospice, it's not necessarily a place for worship (well it is also) but people just go there for quiet time, to grieve, to think about their loved ones .. many different reasons. Our amazing Chaplain puts things in there sporadically to make it more beautiful, upon this visit of mine there was a dish of pebbles, the idea was you made a wish then chose a pebble to keep and represent it ... i wished for love.
Not that I believe that this in anyway would help me in achieving said wish but i thought it was nice, so i kept my pebble, i've had it for about a year now
On the second was a heart pin badge, one of those small ones you get from a High Street shop in exchange for putting a pound in a cardboard collecting box. This was a British Heart Foundation badge. I aquired this when we found out about my baby Nephew Alfie's heart problems (he has Transposition of the Great Arteries, hole in the heart and a closed valve). To me ... it was Alfie's heart.
When i knocked it over last night everything fell off it behind my cabinet, i've since moved the cabinet and looked behind it ... nothing ... i have absolutely no idea where they could have gone ... i just know that they have gone ... i will however, keeping looking behind, perhaps daily, just incase they appear as quick as they disappeared.
Anyway, do as the sign says.
My Alfie: Love Personified
