The earrings my son bought me from Cheap Johns, he told me they were diamonds! WOW, who knew I would cherish them and some of the other gifts my children got me over the years more then the diamonds I have. (Believe me the diamonds around this house are rare.) The best "diamonds" were always the ones the kids picked out from Cheap Johns or the school store.
I remember their faces as they stood in front of me as I opened the gift, the words they said “Mom aren’t they bootiful? I picked them out all by myself.” I wouldn’t trade those memories for all the diamonds in the world…hmmm, I have to think about that now. (says to self while smiling)
I also loved the plants I received, one of my favorites is the kwanzan cherry tree, it was just a branch when I got it.

She loves you just as much, as she held you that first day."
