My favorite word since its melodic syllables first danced into my ears years ago.
Czech Republic... no music there.
I knew the odds were slim that my boys would be able to find something with my favorite word written on it during their travels to Prague.
They did their best, but no luck.
However, they found this and remembered my stein collection...
Beautiful, isn't it?
And I think Česká Republika has a nice ring to it.
(Thank you, boys!)
Once they returned home, I put the whole Czechoslovakia thing behind me.
And that's why this was such a surprise...
It says "Czechoslovakia".
Yeah, I know. It's hard to see.
Here, is this better?
Would you believe my brother-in-law found this on e-Bay for me, knowing the boys hadn't found anything?
So sweet and thoughtful!
Seeing my favorite word on the back is actually kind of amazing to me.
But even better is the vision I have of onyx beads draped through work-worn hands... fingers working their way from bead to bead... scarfed-head bowed over the tarnished silver crucifix... lips moving in silent prayer.
So much history. So much faith.
(Thank you, Ralph!)
