Featured Item: GRATITUDE BEADS

These colourful strands of beads were lovingly crafted by the teenaged children at Hopeful Home Orphanage in Kathmandu.  What they represent is paralleled by their creation.  They are a string of 11 beads and a charm, each bead representing something specific: 3 LARGE beads are for 3 people in your life for whom you are grateful.  6 smaller beads represent 6 'things' each day that you can be thankful for (the sun is shining, I am healthy, I am seeing a dear friend today...).  The 1 LARGE bead on the end represents your spiritual guide, whomever that may be.  The charm is just a playful piece to make you smile.

Hang them on your purse, car keys, rear-view mirror, any place that you will be reminded each day to take a moment and think of those 11 things that you have in your life for which to be GRATEFUL.  Each strand is $10 and they make beautiful gifts for those people in your life for whom you are most grateful.
