I took it out the other day and looked at the words engraved on it.
One side says, "Grow" the other side says, "Strong".
On the front is an Oak leaf and on the back is an Oak tree. Oaks are known for their strength.
I want to grow strong through my pain. Through my trials. I decided to make a bracelet for myself with this charm. I took out some vintage costume jewelry pearls that had lost some of their luster but, to me, fit in with the charm perfectly.
The heart fastener made me think of me and John.. Two hearts that always met in the middle.
