Some of my friends are sending me beads to string together to have with me for the birth. They're sending wishes for the birth or explanations of why they chose the beads they did, and I will be able to hold them while I labor and remember the love and energy of these other women while I give birth. I got my first beads today. It was SO touching and meaningful. I'm really excited to have something like this being done for me.

Oh, that's so neat! We did something like that at a youth retreat. Each person put a bead on a string and said why they chose that bead. At the end, everyone ended up with a bracelet and a lot of nice thoughts.
