Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable. - Kahlil Gibran
A child's fascination with a ladybug is an introduction to Nature that is like no other...I continue to be fascinated by it and count Nature as one of my biggest inspirations. Black and red tinted concrete with specks of black glass bring this little creature to vibrant life as one of my pendants.
Each BootyHeart® pendant is made of hand-shaped stainless steel and filled with my own all-natural, non-toxic mixture of tinted concrete and crushed glass. The final product is a high-shine, sealed, hand-polished pendant that is smooth to the touch.
Please keep in mind that the photographed item is a representation of what you will receive. Each piece is handcrafted; from the shaped steel to the concrete mix, so slight variations are to be expected.
The pendant measures approximately 1'' x 1 1/4'' and comes with 16" sterling silver chain.
