The meaning of this rosary is that I got it from a very close friend that gave it to me before they left to Texas. I don't get to see this person much but when ever I wear the rosary I am reminded of her and our good times. Also this rosary goes with my religion. The rosary for me has two meanings. One is getting it as a gift from a friend that is very far but is always there if I need that person. Also the other meaning is that it went with my religion that we carry it around and have it with us to protect us. I got this rosary when she was going to go back to Texas with her family and was going to miss my birthday by a couple of days. Therefore she gave it to me early with another gift I have not taken off.
