Aside from my wedding rings, there’s one piece of jewelry I never take off. It’s a necklace with 2 dates engraved on it.

Every once in a while, someone will ask about the significance. Generally, I just say “oh, it’s a few dates” and move on.

Today, however, a regular customer at work asked me, and I told her the truth.

I’ve actually lost 2 babies. Engraved are my due dates with both of those pregnancies.

It turns out she’s had multiple miscarriages as well. There were tears shed, but mostly understanding. We connected today. It may have been sad, but it was also healing.

Happy Mother’s Day.
