Two of my favorite things...only 9998 to go!

For this week's favorite things Saturday at Laurie's, I wanted to show my mother's day pins.

The rhinestone MOM I have had since my first mother's day in 1982. My husband took our baby boy to Meijer Thrifty Acres in Detroit and bought it for me. I wear it every mother's day.

Last year for mother's day my daughter gave me the Grandma pin. So now, I wear that every year as well.

I always wear both of them on my blouse to church on Mother's day and it always is a hit....I don't know if I have ever seen another MOM like it....

I have jewelry made of diamonds and pearls and some are precious gifts from my husband....but these pins are two of the most precious of my pieces to me. Because, they say who I really am!

You are so right. If my jewelry box were stolen, it would be all the little treasures my kids made and gave me that I'd miss!

I adore your Mother's Day pins, I have a few oldies, not my own tho. I was also touched by your story in the previous post. The pain you must have endured early on, but to finally be blessed 2 times. God is good. I've never really shared my whole story, but my husband & I went 12 years before we were blessed. Boy I think God has a plan indeed, because after all that waiting he decided I should have triplets! Lisa
