happy mother's day!
i am joining with 'maxabella' today
because i am grateful for a boy
who grew into a man
and kept a promise.
the story of the pearl necklace...
my mr t could not contain himself
and put this away until today.
so on wednesday he gave me my mother's day present...
this pearl necklace.
however the story started a long time ago,
when he was six or thereabouts.
i was driving home from shopping with him
he sat beside me in the front of the car.
we were having a conversation and it went something like this...
'mum, if you could have anything what would you choose?'
' i don't really know, i don't need anything.'
'if i was a millionnaire what would you like?'
'oh, i don't know, what about a pearl necklace?'
'when i grow up i'm going to buy you a pearl necklace.'
'that would be very nice mr t.'
years went by and occasionally he reminded me
that one day he would buy me a pearl necklace..
and we'd have a bit of a laugh about it
remembering that conversation.
every time he looked for a present for me
he would want to buy that necklace
wasn't able to.
this week he bought me a pearl necklace
for mother's day.
he was so excited that he could keep his word to me...
i am touched by his love and integrity...
which is far more valuable to me
than a pearl necklace
whatever it's worth!
whereever you are
whatever you are doing to celebrate your mother
remember that what is in your heart...
is to her
the most valuable
present you can bring!
