Story telling Sunday

It's the first Sunday in the month, that means it's story telling time, hosted by Sian from High in the Sky (now don't you think that's a lovely title, like Jo from Little Women who used to write her stories in the attic)

I digress the theme for this year is 'Pick your Precious' and as I said last month I have already done an album of my little treasures so I'm over half way there for this each month.

February is the month for love with Valentines day in the middle of it, so I wanted to do a story about love, but not a husband/wife love, a daughter/mother love.

Now my daughter is not a sentimental person so when I received this little box from her it made me cry, for it showed me just how much she loves me.




The wording on the card written as a poem

This is a very special gift
That you can only see
The reason it's so special
It's just for you and me

Whenever you are lonely,
Or even feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift
And know I'll think of you

You can never unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold it close to your heart
It's fill with love inside. 

 A Special Gift

Thank you Sian for continuing to host this blog hop I really do enjoy it. 

If you have enjoyed reading about my treasures why not pop over to Sian's place and read some more stories

It would have made me cry too! And it's all the more special because it's not the kind of thing she would give normally.

Amy said...

It's beautiful. I have one from my son that he made when he first started school. I liked it so much I made one for my Mum and my sister.

I've kept several of the hand made gits they kids made for me when they were little, and I do treasure each one.
