Wednesday is "Necklaces" Day.

When I was in high school, I wore a necklace with a cross and a small football on it. I wore the cross from my sophomore year on and then my senior night for being a trainer my mom gave me the football. I knew by the end of the season that I had been accepted to OU and when I got that football, it made it all the more special because as we all know, I love me some OU football. I also had received a dashboard cover from my grandpa with the OU Sooners logo put on it...it might have had my name on it too. If you have been in my car at any point you've seen it.

Somewhere during my freshman year I stopped wearing that necklace. It wasn't because I didn't like it, I just felt like I have moved beyond it. Ha...whatever that means. I also wasn't at my strongest in my relationship with God at that point either and wearing the football by itself seemed silly. So I took it off. I think I thought I was too cool or something.

My sophomore year I joined Phi Lamb and upon becoming a member, I received my drop. I wore that necklace from then on through the first year of my year and a half as a senior. Then one day like the football necklace, I just didn't want to wear it anymore.

I can't find either one of those necklaces.

And I wish I knew where they were.

They are a part of who I am in a weird way.

I have a new necklace from Brandon's grannie. It has the weights of justice on it. She got all the girls a necklace with a charm on it three Christmases ago and I was so touched that she had picked this for me.

I haven't worn it yet. I think...actually I know I am holding out until I find out if I am accepted.

I'm not sure why I chose to write about this. But it is still educational as you found out something about me. Hope you're having a merry day.

That is a good story. I find myself doing that with different items. That at one time they held so much meaning and then one day I just stopped!
