Pressure Makes Diamonds.



Good Morning, My Angels!
I came across this adorable necklace & of course…immediately thought of all of you!
I bought 2 others for very special people in my life & wanted to get one for one of you as well.



Sometimes in life, we go through some very tough times & it helps to have a little encouragement to help you through. A little token to let you know that you aren't alone, someone is thinking of you,  rooting for you, and….that someone cares & loves you. 

So…if you are going through a tough time right now & could really use a little encouragement…comment down below & I will randomly pick one of you to send this to. 
I will pick the name on Monday, September 24th. 

I wish I had a million to send to all of you, but hopefully…the person who's souls needs the most sunshine…will be the name I pick! 
I pray none of you are hurting, but if you are…I also pray that you know I care. 

Have a beautiful day, Loves & I'll be back tomorrow for my "Friday Favorites" & I'll also be Guest Posting (My very first time) on Blonde Episodes, for the beautiful Kori! 
Stop by & check it out!
I'm excited!

HUGE Love & Hugs to you ALL!
XO

Adorable necklace! I've been struggling with my father being laid off from work. He has worked for the same company for 22years. He and my mom both help out so many people including my grandmother, who lost her husband in May. I feel the "Pressure" to be the one to lend a hand. It's tough as money is tight for us as well. My husband is as principal of a school and his pay gets cut each year. I find myself thinking that I should go back to work ful time. I work part time so I can be involved with my two young boys ages 4 and 6. I've been praying tons and know that God has a PLAN! Thanks for Dall your messages, they always brighten my day!

I'm struggling between work and home life .. Our team of 20 workers has taken a drop down to 5 .. we are all over worked, under pressure, trying to meet deadlines, etc .. On top of that, I'm trying to be a maid, a cook, a nurse, a mom, a girlfriend .. I just feel overwhelmed .. This necklace would mean the world to me :) It would give me reason to look down everyday and realize that all this will soon end .. This too shall pass .. Life is hard .. Love is hard .. Work is hard .. We all struggle .. We all are under pressure .. I wish I could buy 100 of these necklaces and hand them out to all the women I know .. Our jobs never stop .. We don't get to have sick days .. We are amazing, strong, human beings .. God gave women the strength we need because he knew men just couldn't handle it! :) I love your blog V, and I love the person you are .. No matter how bad my days can be, or how busy I am, I always take a minute to come to your blog .. Immediately, I am uplifted and a smile is on my face .. You're truly amazing and such a blessing .. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog .. I feel like you were meant to be in my everyday life! :) xoxo!

OMG where did you get that I would love to have one. I would send you the money for one.

V, you are my sunshine. Your blog has brightened so many of my less than stellar days. I moved away from home a year ago, as my husband is in the military and his children were living with me. We needed to be together as a family. I have never lived away from my family and my friends before and it has been so incredibly hard on me, well harder than I had anticipated. This past year I have been struggling to find my place here. I am out of my comfort zone. I have had to make a lot of sacrifices for my family and, while I don't regret them, I'm having a difficult time accepting them. I don't know many people here. I don't have the support system I did back home and so I struggle. To be honest, the move has caused more problems than it has fixed. I am doing the best I can, but it's hard.

I love that you are so inspirational, beautiful, and loving. Thank you for making me smile. Thank you for sharing your beauty with the world. Thank you for being you.

<3 from the bottom of my heart

I'm not struggling more than any other person. I truely believe that God will never give me more than I can handle. That is what keeps me sane! When I get sad or mad or depressed I put my faith in that knowledge. None the less, that is an awesome necklace! You have very good taste (I knew that when I looked in Jamie's medicine cabinet and saw the "Lush" products....she told me you sent them to her). I love reading your blogs! Stay safe.

Update…Ok Girls…your stories broke my heart & I ♥ you all so much…I wanted to surprise you guys & send all of you that commented, one. But…I could only find 3 total! =( So…my question to you guys is…what do you think is the best way to give them out. Now that I have 3, do I still do a drawing? Or something else? Any ideas? Please let me know what you think, k. I wanna be as fair as possible. =) Thank you so so much! XO

I don't have anything tragic in my life, just been a lot of different things going on. Leaving my family and friends behind and moving across the country. I was sick for several months and now that I thought I was feeling better have been struggling with my kids. Emotionally they have hard times without their friends they have known since birth. Kindergarten has been a new challenge for my son. My daughter had pnemonia and just when she was getting better, she broke her arm last week. She is only 3 and it hurts my hard. On top of all that I just miss my girlfriends, and although I have made new friends it just isn't the same as having my rocks there for me. A few marital sturggles with the move. Just overall been feeling really blah. Struggling with weight. The list goes on and on it seems. Luckily we just foudn the church, which I have never been a aprt of and even though we are just a few weeks in , I feel it has been speakign to me and might be what I need at this point in my life. Anyhow, didn't mean to unload, just wanted to share. You always inspire me and make me smile. Always a nice reminder to know there are such good people in the world. xoxo

This necklace is so inspiring. :) Definitely a great affirmation to have with you at all times.

i believe we are all fighting a hard battle & that everyone deserves this necklace, but I trust you will find the perfect one...or three...of us to give it to.

You are such an inspiration. :)

Veronika said...

Awww…I just LOVE LOVE LOVE you guys & just so you know…ALL of YOU…inspire me every day! =) Ok…I decided, thanks to all of you, of course…to just do my usual drawing, to make it completely fair, but last thing I need from you, pretty please…is one more comment that says, "I want to win this!" =) Just so I know for sure, who wants it, and who just left an incredibly sweet comment! =) Make sense? =) Just comment below & I'll know for sure! Thank you ALL…with every beat of my heart! Until later…XO

Bree said...

Oh, what a nice thing for you to do for your readers. I'm new to your blog via Leslie Moody. She used to babysit me back in Upland when I was a wee tot. :)
Like everyone else that has commented and read your post, my family has been struggling for the past year. That's why I try to treat everyone I meet like they are going through something hard! I know lots of people are struggling right now.
We as a family have moved 4 times in the past year, maneuvered a job change that is honestly not looking so hot, and have also had a huge blow to my already stressed out marriage. :( We are on the upswing, but I've had to put my negativity aside and COUNT MY BLESSINGS!
No matter what happens in this life, I've got my little family and nothing could make me happier!
Thanks for doing this drawing and being so Inspirational! And p.s. I want to win! :)

Kori said...

Jenna said...

I would love to have this necklace as a constant reminder that things will always get better and there are people out there who care :)

Thank you!
xxoo <3

Jenna said...

I WANT TO wIN THIS. Please. About a yr ago my mom died. And then my mothers ex hubby tried to sneak in and take what very little she had and make sure I had nothing. Its still a ongoing battle to this day. Bc of this man and his greedy actions my brother (half brother) has nothing to do with me. Also did I mention I just had ally ( my second girl) about 3 weeks before my mom died. So I was struggling with two kids my mothers death and my step dad all at once. Well having a 2nd kid meant I had to find a job plus we had to hire a lawyer for my moms will. About a yr later we are still dealing with my moms will but I got a job waiting tables at night so I could still be home with the girls during the day. I think keeping myself busy with kids work personal issues and still trying to be the best wife has helped me. I wake up every morning to two sweet little faces and those girls are what keep me going.

Bree said...

I WAnt to win. :) It's precious.

Jlmarquez said...

I would love to win this! I would give it to my daughter Grace. I had her my senior year in high school 2 weeks after I graduated. :) She is now a Senior, graduating this May! I would love for her to have this, she has worked very hard and this is her time to shine! :) Thank you V!! You are a truly inspirational and beautiful person inside and out! <3
