a late Mother’sDay


I opened the box delivered and anticipated. At first I thought “SCORE, they got me a nice lens for my new camera, Wonderful Children! ”

Then, I read the box. [the made in China should have been a clue]


A Ha! Financially challenged children. Then next best thing, a cup that looks like a lens.

From another child [also financially challenged] a birthstone necklace, one stone for each child’s birth month. Now I am on the hunt for two more August stones. There are three children with August birthdays.
