My Golden Birthday is coming up soon (25 on May 25th), and my mom said she wants to get me something special. Most of the things I would like are ‘experiences’ rather than actual, physical gifts, so I don’t know what to tell her to get me! She has expressed that she wants the gift to be something that I can keep for a long time, but I’m not really sure what that includes.
So bees, what is the best present you have ever gotten?

This really isn’t an idea that would work for you, but the best gift that I ever got was from my children.
When they were 12, 10, and 7, we lived in a very small town, so they would occasionally walk to town to get ice cream or whatever. Well, it was my birthday and they wanted to get me something special and on their own, so without telling me, they broke open their piggy banks and walked into town and payed a visit to the antique store in town.
Together they picked out a very nice cameo and went to the store owner to pay for it. They asked the store owner how much it would cost and he told them, so the took all of their change and laid it on the counter. Well, the amount they had wasn’t quite enough, so they were sad.
The store owner felt sorry for them, so he told them that he forgot that they were having a sale on that particular cameo that day only and what money they had was just enough to cover the price.
They were very excited about this and told me the story when they gave me the cameo because, of course, I had ask where they had found it. That was just over 18 years ago, and I still have and wear the cameo 🙂
