Hey, I'm not supposed to get presents on Mother's Day! (Unless my darling Josh or Biff wanted to get me something, but hey, they're kitties.) But this morning, when I went to my grandma's for breakfast, she gave me a set of pearls.
Grandma has gotten pearls for each of her five female grandchildren. This is not just another reason why she's so awesome, it's also a very thoughtful and practical gesture. Grandma knows that every little girl, and every grown woman, no matter their taste, should own a good set of pearls- necklace, bracelet, earrings. It's such a lovely way of thinking, and an enduring gift that will never go out of style. I believe we should all own them- there will always be some occasion. And now I have mine.
And I guess they'll suffice as far as Mother's Day goes, since I doubt these schmucks will be buying me anything anytime soon:
