When my daughter Megan was born I started daydreaming about a special gift that I could give her when got older.
I would love to present her with a special charm bracelet. On May 12th Megan will turn 7.
Here are the charms that I would use to represent her life.
1. Wishbone with Pearl charm #0677
Megan means "pearl."
We wished for a daughter but were told that we were having a son.
The ultrasound was wrong and our wish came true!
2. Disc charm #1495
On one side: MEM (or Megan Elisabeth McLane), 5/12/01
On the other side: I Samuel 1:27-28 (I prayed for this child, and the LORD
has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his
whole life he will be given over to the LORD.")
3. Emerald (May) charm #4764
4. Tiara charm #2418
Every six year old thinks she is a princess!
5. Bookworm charm #3065
Megan loves to read.
6. Bible charm #1228
Megan was baptized on Easter Sunday 2008
7. Palm charm #2343
My daughter and I made a pact to go on a mother-daughter trip to Hawaii some day.
8. Butterfly charm #3763
Megan was fascinated with butterflies when she was three. Our favorite
outing was to the Butterfly House/Garden at the zoo.
9. Rabbit charm #2264
Megan's favorite book is "The Runaway Bunny"
10. Cat charm #0977
Megan is an animal lover. She has had two cats: 1) Violet (named so because
her favorite color was purple) and 2) Lovely Gorgeous McLane
Thanks for the contest. I've had a blast looking through your impressive collection of charms!
