You don't miss it until it's gone.

Just like most things in life...I didn't miss it until it was gone.

She gave it me a couple of months ago. She made it for me, so I wore it. It was at the height of her rainbow loom phase, a custom made bracelet just for me! A few weeks ago she even stopped and said to me, "mama, thanks for wearing the bracelet I made you".

I took this picture one day a while back to show her I was still wearing it. I wore it everywhere and never took it off. I wore it to work, to yoga, to bed, while showering, and every time in between. I am not a huge fan of jewelry. I don't usually wear my wedding ring and I never wear necklaces or bracelets. I only recently started wearing earrings again, and that's only because my husband kept buying them for me.

I was sitting at my desk after lunch today and looked down at my wrist and noticed there was no longer a bracelet on my wrist... Maybe it came off while I was sleeping, maybe it fell of while I was getting coffee or walked down the hall? It doesn't really matter, I guess, because it's gone. I didn't realize how much I really kind of liked that bracelet. It was only a silly little cheap rainbow loom bracelet, but it was mine and I kind of miss it...

I guess it is true. Sometimes you don't miss something until it's gone.

PS - when I told her about this, she promptly made me another one. This one is blue, white and black.
