So, I have this thing for frogs. I don't know why. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the sound of frogs at night. We lived in the cement suburbs of LA, so any sound of nature was like a miracle to me. I have little frogs all over the place. Not all in your face… just some subtle amphibian-izing of the decor at the Sugar Shack.
Imagine how excited I was when I saw this:
With all the craziness in the world that was going on last week, I still found time to treat myself to a little bobble from Lucid New York. I had to do something to take my mind off of all the bad news… and quite frankly, I could come up with any reason for needing to have the froggy bling. I almost went nuts when I saw the rest of Anna’s designs. The intricacy of the petals that wrap around the center stones are just so whimsical and fun.
I’m not one to completely ignore reality. But I do like reminders nearby that pull the reigns back on my anxieties and bring a smile to my face. I mean, how can you not smile with that cute little frog looking up at you?
One other neat thing about frogs that I picked up since the days of hearing their songs from the cement riverbeds? The acronym that I apply to my precious little amphibians now is Fully Rely On God. That helps me even more when I start to worry about the things I can not change. This little bobble has been a fun reminder to pray for wisdom, patience, and serenity.
I bet Anna never knew she was bringing a little prayer to my heart with her beautiful creation…
