A Sentimental Gift Idea

I read this in the Dollar Stretcher newsletter years ago and it seemed so touching that I kept it. My own parents died years ago so I can’t use this myself but I think it would make a wonderful gift for a mother or father…

"I think this gift is the most treasured one my mother has ever received. Several weeks before Christmas I sent my three brothers 10 blank parchment cards. I asked them each to write out 10 separate fond or special memories they have about our mom. Combined with my own, I then put the 40 cards in an extra large vase tied with a beautiful bow.

My mom didn’t know what to make of the gift at first, but as she started reading the cards she became filled with emotion. Anytime she needs a little reminder as to just how special she is, all she has to do is pull a card out and she knows she is loved."
