Wowee! What a Birthday Surprise!


Even though I’ve already had a great birthday month, since my boyfriend took me on a trip to Mexico to celebrate, I got a wonderful surprise today!

I went to the bead store to pick up a few items during their Small Business Saturday sale. Spend $25 and get a $25 gift card back from American Express.  Can’t beat that!

Anyway, when I walked in, Ella said “I have a surprise for you.”  I said, “Oh, did you get those jewelry polishing cloths in?”  (I’ve been waiting for them)  She said no, they hadn’t come in, and handed me an envelope.  At first I couldn’t believe my eyes.  I couldn’t even process what I was seeing.  She had handed me a $125 gift certificate from my daughter to use at the bead store!

I was so stunned!  We don’t even usually buy gifts for each other in our family, we give each other a card and spend time together doing something fun when a birthday rolls around.  I had to pay for today’s purchase on my Amex card so that I could get the $25 gift card from them, but that’s OK.  I don’t want to spend my store certificate yet, I just want to…..hold it for a little while.  Then I will use it little by little when I need, or even want, beady things.  $125 is sooooo much money to me.  I can’t believe I actually have that much money, just to spend on beads and nothing else.

As soon as I got home I called my daughter and I couldn’t thank her enough.  She was happy that I was happy, and blah, blah, blah, we had a happy-fest, lol.

So that was a much better surprise than a polishing cloth.  And when they do come in, I’ll have the money to buy one.

That was a very nice surprise from your daughter. Have fun using it and I don't blame you at all for wanting to just hold onto it for a while.
