The Bracelet

As the sun shined brightly in the midday warmth, something caught the little girl’s eye as she walked on the beach.

Colors – green, blue, and red stood out among the glistening grains of sand. Odd that the girl had noticed them at all, since she was crying and very sad.  She felt helpless, alone.

As she picked up the object, she noticed that it was a small bracelet with a charm.  Fingering the charm, cleaning off the sand, she saw Mary, felt her love, and all her troubles washed away.
