My 32nd birthday was January 7, 2015. My mother-in-law gave me this cross to encourage me….that things WILL get better as long as i have faith. On March 21, 2010, I was involved in a car accident that injured only myself and totaled my car and also resulted in many many health difficulties that included 4 right ankle surgeries as well as a left kidney removal….all resulting from the car wreck. Last year, 2014, was hopefully the last surgery to be done. But I am still struggling with health difficulties as the result of the surgeries too, so I’ve become depressed and self-loathing. My mother-in-law presented me with this cross to tell me things will get better and to keep the faith. When the cross has served it’s purpose, I am to pass it on.
