"Perfection, Light, and Life"

My friend Stacy sent me a sweet message. She shared how her husband's family has had a tradition since he was a child of ringing a bell when leaving the house and how she wanted to find one for their family to continue the tradition.

Here's what she said, "So I was looking on Amazon to see if I could maybe get him one for here that we could start doing with our kids and eventually our grandkids. It said some French sounding words in the description and I had no idea what it meant, so I looked it up - and had to send it to you - you probably already know about this, but I love it! It says... "The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" (sometimes spelled "fleur-de-lys") is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life." .... "Perfection, light, and life! Yep! That's Lily!" ❤️ And!! Look at the picture behind the message I just sent you!"

That certainly does describe my girl! And how dear for Stacy to think of her and to send this to me. :)
