wildflower {wednesday}

An invisible red thread  
those who are destined to meet 
regardless of time, place or circumstance.  
The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.
~chinese proverb~

Almost two years ago, 
we met our youngest daughter in China.

It was an experience
that changed me.

I learned a lot about faith.
And hope.
And relying on Him.

It was a journey that stretched us.
And yes, there were many tangles along the way.

But meeting this little one for the very first time,
was wonderful
and more beautiful
than I could have ever imagined.

She makes us laugh...
and smile...
every day.
She is one of our greatest blessings.
And I will never forget how grateful I am that we found each other.

since it's {wednesday},
let's give away a necklace.

Just leave me a comment
telling me which of these two designs
you would choose.

Both designs include a sterling silver disc handstamped as pictured.
A sweet jade charm dangles from the top.
Hangs on a simple red thread.
Just like my very favorite necklace from China...

Easy enough?

Of course, extra entries if you are a wheat and {wildflowers} follower
and/or if you blog, facebook or tweet about this giveaway.

Just make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry,
since I will generate a random winner from the total number of comments.

Entries will be accepted through Monday, August 16th.
A winner will be announced here on Tuesday.

~happy {wednesday}~
