The other day I received a bracelet and it is the most precious thing I have ever received.
It’s not expensive. It has no diamonds.
When my daughter came back from school one day and sat down and concentrated on making 10 loom band bracelets for her friends, I was a bit miffed. Especially when I saw another mother sporting one who happened to tell me how her daughter made it especially for her.
A few days later, I asked my daughter how it was that she hadn’t thought of me. She said that she didn’t think I’d wear one but said she’d make one for me if I wanted. To which I replied that I didn’t one want one now since she didn’t make me one in the first place. I was acting like a petulant child.
Over the next few days I saw her working on her loom with a lot of huffing and sighing, giving up quite often and starting again.
After a couple of weeks of trying she came up and presented me with this lovely star burst bracelet which looked pretty intricate to me.she told me she didn’t want me to have an ordinary bracelet.
It contained colours that would match all my outfits and I promised to wear it when I next went out and whenever I was out from then on.
It wasn’t set with diamonds.
It didn’t come in a fancy box with satin lining.
But each loom band had love woven into it.
It had been a labour of love.
The most inexpensive and yet most precious piece of jewellery I had ever received.
To me it is priceless…
As….who can put a price on love?
