My daughter, Ella Rose Martin, was one of Zox's biggest fans! She loved buying the bands for herself and gifting them to friends and family as well. She did this for several years until she couldn't anymore.
I got the call in early December 2020 that my 22-year-old pregnant daughter had multiple blood clots in her brain. 3 days later she was gone. I was able to be by her side. Those days were unbelievable. The days since have been a blur. This is my new life, life without my precious girl. The heartache is indescribable. I have turned my attention to things that she enjoyed to help me deal with my loss.
Zox bands were the first things that I purchased after she died. I carried on her gifting tradition with them for our belated Christmas that year and have continued to buy them when one stands out for a friend or loved one. I KNOW NOW WHY SHE LOVED THEM SO MUCH! I have been celebrating her birthday every year with a girl's trip that includes something to remember Ella and that particular birthday.
For her third heavenly birthday, March 2023, I bought the rabbit zodiac bands for all of us. (From the day she was born she was called Ella Bunny!) I wear a small band while the rest of the crew wears medium. When the bands came in, I opened mine to see what it looked like. I turned it over to check the number on the back....it was 25. 25!!!! It would have been her 25th birthday! That's a sign from above! She was there with me. She approved of my birthday gifts. I cried, A LOT! I have worn that band every day since.
It's getting really worn out now and I'm sad about it. I will put it away in her memory box after her birthday this year. I hope to replace it with the In Loving Memory band soon.
Thank you Zox for making a positive difference in our lives. My Ella and I love and appreciate all that you do to spread love, peace, positivity, encouragement, and the list goes on! You are forever a part of my life now, because of my angel.
