Be strong, brave & humble bottlecaps

These are some resin bottlecap pendants I made for the young women in my ward going to girl's camp this year. I was going to go, but my back problems flared up at the worst possible time, so I couldn't. Bummer. The caps say, "Kia Kaha, Kia Maia, Kia Ngawari" which in Maori means, "Be stong, be brave, be humble" which kinda went with the camp theme this year. I kinda need that advice now, because I'm feeling a little scared. Got MRI results today, and there was a lot of mumbo jumbo that I didn't really understand, but didn't have the presence of mind to ask what it was. Tears in my discs, defects, herniation, blah blah... Doctor referred me to the orthopedic surgeon and neurologist to do a consult on surgery options. I kinda always knew it would come to this, but now that it's happening, I'm a little afraid :/ Happy Wednesday?

These are awesome! I love the fact you used Maori as well (I'm from New Zealand - I love it when our culture is celebrated).

Kia Kaha Girl - be strong xoxox

Fear can be a good thing if it inspires you to ask lots of questions, maybe get second opinions and keep yourself educated about your health, Kira! Keep your chin up!

Love the pendants! Lots of warm and fuzzy healing thoughts coming your way! Stay strong and don't be afraid to ask a million questions!

Thanks you guys :) I need to write down all my questions so I don't get flustered and forget them. Thanks for your love and support :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your back =( A list of questions is totally the way to go. Instead of waiting till the next visit you could always call your doctor to set your mind at ease sooner. I'll be thinking of you! <3
