when i saw this picture my eyes filled with tears

not because i was sad but because i was moved.

moved because this necklace created in our little workshop

traveled in capable, caring hands across the country

and made it’s way to a small town in the dominican republic

and around the neck of this beautiful woman.

a woman who works hard, loves her kids, worries about her family and laughs with her friends.

just like i do.

she’s really not that different from me or you, is she?
