TTC: Saint Anne Necklace

I just had to share this. I got home from work on Wednesday evening to find this pendant with a necklace from my Mom.

Here is a little bit of history behind it: "According to the apocryphal Gospel of James, Anne and her husband Joachim, after years of childlessness, were visited by an angel who told them that they would conceive a child. Anne promised to dedicate the child to God's service. Joachim and Anne are believed to have given Mary to the service of the Second Temple when the girl was three years old.[1] Anne is the patron saint of Quebec, Brittany, the Mi'kmaq peoples, childless couples, women in labor, and miners." .

Thank you, Mom, for all the support you have given Christopher and I through this crazy journey. We love you!
