Look at what my sweet Blogger friend sent me!
Janet designs jewelry and sells them on Esty.  She made this little charm necklace for me with Heidi, Lily, Paige, and Ry’s initials on it. 
Is it just me, or do you see the word Helper when you see the letters H – L – P - R?  It’s probably just me, and I’m looking into this waaaay too much, but that’s what I see and think every time I see those initials together. 
All I’ve ever hoped to come out of this mess of a situation was to be able to help someone.  My babies continue to remind me to make the best out of life and to remember to help others.  I am so, so thankful to know first hand that I have been able to help others by simply telling my story. 
Thanks again, Janet!  I LOVE it!


  1. I LOVE this Lauren. And yes I see it too.

  2. It's beautiful! What a sweet thing to do :)
    That's why I created my grief blog too- I'd read other blogs and they helped me so much, I thought maybe if I put it out there I could help someone get through it too.

  3. It's beautiful! And, I see it too. You are a help and inspiration to so many Lauren.

  4. so precious! and you are completely inspiring and i know helpful to other moms who have gone through/are going through tragic losses. blessings, lauren!

  5. I love the necklace...and you are not alone in thinking you see a word in their initials, I always see "smile" in my SML, like they sent me a special message. Hugs, Nan xxx

  6. Beautiful! Her necklaces are great! I see the 'helper' too and love that some good is coming from your sweet green beans!

  7. I love that idea ... the Green Beans are your own little Helper, even though they're not here physically. And thanks to God, and Blogger, they are living on in our hearts too, even when we never met them.

  8. Lauren,

    How thoughtful of Janet to send you something so very special :)

    You are a "Helper" and I love that you found that significance in your babies names. They are "helpers" as well...guiding our way :)


  9. Love the necklace! And yes I do see where it says helper!!
