The Diva's Weekly Challenge: Beads of Courage

Beads of Courage is an Arts in Medicine program that supports children and their families who are dealing with Life threatening or Chronic illnesses. 

A child on the program would collect beautiful glass beads in recognition of the things whey have to go through in their daily lives, on their Medical Journey.  When a child goes to yet another doctor's appointment, they'd get a glass bead, when they need to have a needle, they get a glass bead.  Each bead on their strings represent something they've done or gone through.


This weeks "Diva Challenge"  honors the "Diva's" child who is in this program and who has accumulated a large amount of courageous "beads!"

My Tangle represents strings of beads which have conquered 2 mountain peaks - "Overcoming Obstacles One Bead at a time."

Great capture of the symbolism of this project, Barb. What a wonderful thing to do and a wonderful representation as well.
