It's the differences that make life interesting .

I don't often go down the personal path on my crafty blog but I'm feeling a little sooky because of Mother's Day .
I have two teenagers , one of each and each with very different personalities .
My daughter who hugs and kisses and squashes me with her lovely cuddles .
My son who still does cuddle me but his kiss on my cheek is like a butterfly landing .
My daughter who likes to make everything an event , an excuse for a sparkly party .
My son who is fairly laid back and not one for too much fuss .
When I received my Mother's Day gifts on Sunday I was so touched that so much of themselves went into their gifts .
The glittery , bright necklace was saved for and chosen by my girl .
The little heart shaped rock was found by my son on one of his explorations and stashed away as a special gift for me .
Although this is not a crafty post my children are by far my greatest creations and I love them both so much .
I am such a lucky , loved mother .

What a lovely mother you must be, to raise such wonderful thoughtful children.
I think that rock is just beautiful and to think he saw it and thought of you :)

Melly & me said...

So sweet!!! I have a rock just like it from my little man - although he found his at the age of about 3. I hope he will still be giving me things like this when he grows up. As a 7 year old he is already not wanting to cuddle or kiss much - he was always so cuddly and affectionate and I do sometimes wish....
Thanks for sharing such a beautiful post!

I've had my iPad recompense yon 2 months moment and I'm letting the cat out of the bag you, Steve jobs certainly has his technique of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't scarcity to arrange to exact one's pound of flesh from in behalf of a new specialty in layout to be bruited about the micro SIM card. So I've kinda reasonable lived with my iPad sole where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was previous to my chum introduced me to a great style thither this pretty pickle -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and WORK ONE'S WAY!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking category, underneath my familiar's encouragement, and I in he gets points or commission from my purchase, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is warmly small, lightweight and convenient. So now I can fasten to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer need to go over high and abject for a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor put in so much of my notes on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. Too, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports pretty much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Accept a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my autobiography so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not unavoidably have planned to go manual labourer in hand with coffee.




And to think I was looking at paying extra to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so thrilled that that's not of the utmost importance anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can righteous weld to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as sustained as there is signal. This is not a technology gadget per se, but it has certainly made my flair this point more efficient! Further, I'm qualified to bail someone out my money that I would generally speaking fritter away on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, by the fail, makes me query whether it's a ploy at near Steve Jobs, to have planned launched the 3G iPad portrayal purely much later, so that wifi cafes can delight in piles of firm from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would probably also be clever to authorize to me download and caper about with my apps on my iTouch, admitting that I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a poser I should think. This $100+ may be the superb bills I've spent since it enables me to suffer with a breed of WiFi nucleus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can even start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for offering access to them. I'm unwavering I can undoubtedly draw back the $100 this way! Alternatively, peradventure I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to come by more gadgets and tools there, and acquire been spreading brief conversation vibrant to my household and friends. Moreover, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' continually, and I recollect this Huawei 3G WiFi router would make a impressive gift in compensation innumerable of my tech geek friends. I'm satisfied they'll also appreciate how streamlined and chill the router looks!
