Something for you

 Necklace purchased for my mom from Sedona Arizona

Necklace purchased for my mom from Sedona Arizona

There was a time when I was older that I was so delighted that I had saved enough money to return the generosity my mother had always shown me.  I delighted in buying her presents in the same way she enjoyed doing it for me.  I always joked that my mom was the easiest person in the world to shop for, mostly because we loved so many of the same things. I bought her this necklace on a trip I took to Sedona Arizona.  It was all I could afford, but I wanted to buy her something special.  It may have been a little more hippie dippy than her normal style, but I do believe she loved it.  I know she understood that this was a big purchase for me at the time, and I could feel the love in her eyes, when she thanked me.  Now that I have children,  I so deeply understand that it is truly the gesture and the thought that are the gift.  xo
