November Birthstone – Citrine & Topaz
November for me, is the month where I remember my dear beloved grandmother and best friend ‘Nanou’. Knowing her spirit and love of life she would want us to celebrate in the times we had together and continue to create and have fun. In her memory I dedicate the beautiful lively positive Citrine, which represents our true life force, the energy of the sun. May the warm rays of love from our loved ones who have passed on still surround us and comfort us at time of need. And to you all who you know this sense of loss, I hope you find comfort in the simple joys of life.
