The day after I had baby M, S & A came into my room to visit, with a beautiful gift bag in hand. Inside was the most sentimental card, thanking me for what I had done for them and also saying that “thank you” would never be enough. Also inside the bag was a small, velvet box. We all know what kinds of goodness comes from boxes like these! I opened it to find a beautiful silver and diamond necklace inside. They most certainly didn’t have to do anything like this for me, but I will always love and appreciate their gift. My husband put it on me right then and I haven’t taken it off since.
When I look at it, it’s shape reminds me of my pregnant belly and the diamond in the middle represents baby M. It is a beautiful memento of a very special time in my life that resulted in one very happy couple and a delightful little boy.
