This little jewel was custom made by my dear friend BJ who is living with an incurable form of cancer. During a recent visit, knowing that I'm completely obsessed with sock dollies, BJ pulled out her sewing machine and whipped up this lovely for me. This doll has become a personal beacon of hope and a badge of love that I will forever cherish. Isn't she a cutie? The only thing I have to make sure is that she does not get corrupted by my mischievous sock monkey, Melvin, who is always up to no good. ;)

Expressions of love simply warm my heart. As we all sprinkle our *gift of jewels* out into the universe, I'd like to invite you to leave a comment below with a special wish, or a prayer for someone in need. I sincerely believe that love strengthens the soul, especially in times of great adversity. Today, I raise my prayer flag in hopes to increase the positive vibrations here on earth, and send out these wishes for:
ayiti, i see you.
peace around the world,
the eradication of poverty
abolishment of slavery in all its forms,
equal rights and justice for all.
oh JAH, i pray that
all children be cared for
the hungry, be fed
the homeless, sheltered
the elderly, protected
the sick, nourished
for each and every one of you
to find love wherever you are today.
